Owner Aaron Cohen, has been a working contractor at the top of the field for over 20 years. As a professional artisan, Aaron has consistently been regarded as an expert on wall finishing techniques. His desire to seek out only the best earth-friendly and beautiful materials led him to discover Vicenza, Italy’s Stucco Italiano, which we now import as the sole distributor in the United States. Stucco Italiano is manufactured in Italy in the middle of the Veneto Region, near Venice, under the supervision of Giovanni Polistena, master artisan and installer. This area is well-known for being one of the richest in Italian architectural heritage and artisanship. Giovanni Polistena started his business in Italy over 30 years ago. His primary goal has been to disseminate the use of traditional Italian stuccos and its original application techniques. Now that the use of Venetian stuccos has proliferated around the world, this former goal has become a mission. Unfortunately, this fashionable trend of using Italian stuccos has encouraged the production of poor imitations and incorrect application procedures, so Stucco Italiano’s primary objective is now to provide proper training for the professional. At our Stucco Italiano studio in Seattle, you will receive knowledgeable, thorough training in the distinct Italian tradition.Aaron Cohen has professionally trained hundreds of artists, painters and plasterers in decorative wall finishing since 1994. His focus on real-life job situations takes the student beyond the sample board and into the successful completion of the most challenging projects. Aaron’s teaching philosophy is to go beyond the classroom and continue to support and promote his students so they can translate their new skills into increased business and profits, and keep working towards their success long after the class is over.
Should you choose Stucco Italiano’s authentic lime plaster for your next project, we will support your project through the design, installation, and maintenance phases.
