Rocalia Forum

In 2017 ROCALIA presented an exhibition on stereotomy, an artistic and complex building technique based on the stone-cutting art. In 2019, we invite you to discover his application: the acoustic shell, an architectural work designed by Giuseppe Fallacara and carried out by the Compagnons du Devoir apprentices specialised in stone trades. The beauty of this spectacular natural stone work can be seen on the scene of the Forum.
