Scope note:

this expression indicates flooring and wall facing built with stone or marble slabs or with other material, mainly polychromatic, in different degrees of thickness and quite large in size, moulded and juxtaposed to form the most diverse geometrical shapes and figures. Polychromatic marble, generously and diversely employed, was appreciated for its intrinsic value as well as for the chromatic contrasts that could be obtained: pavonazzetto or phrygian, giallo antico, African marble, cipollino or caristio, portasanta, red porphyry and serpentine green.
