There is a great shop at Chifenti where you can buy all kinds of great things for your garden. They also sell pizza ovens, pellets for your heater and lots of other things.
I spotted these wonderful old water pipes and thought they would look good in the garden at Casa Debbio, but someone had beaten me to them…I should call in more often.
We bought a lovely travertine garden table and bench seats at Alberigi. They also have tiled tables, outdoor paving and some great old things that he finds. I’m sure you will find something you can’t live without here.

We will certainly visit it next time. Thanks, Deb!
It is a great shop. You never know what you will find there.
Alberigi Marco Store also sells a wide selection of indoor material as well as the gorgeous photos of outdoor stuff Debra is showing us. We bought from them a kitchen sink and kitchen countertop (“piano cottura”) both made from stone quarried from a mountain near nearby Cardoso (“pietra cardoso”), Tuscan-style clay “cotto” floor tiles, plus stone veneer for our kitchen wall for our Riolo house. And also had the lowest price among three bidders. There is also a plumbing fixture manufacturer in nearby Viareggio (Rubinetterie Toscane Ponsi S.p.A.) Point being one can source a decent amount of building material from somewhere in either Lucca provincia or the Toscana regione if one is so inclined.
Thank you for the extra information. The shop is quite big, I obviously didn’t see everything.
I would love one of those pizza ovens.
I love Alberigi Marco!!! We call it Alladdin’s Cave. Bought a lovely outside tiled iron table and chairs and a cute clay candle pot there. I’ve yearned for one of their old style quaint wells and a rustic carved out stone bowl but really don’t have a need or a spot for them.
They have some great stuff there. He gets some really interesting old pieces, which I will have to keep and eye on.
Love the look of the old pipes, lots of character. What a shame you missed out on getting them. Never mind, you may see something similar somewhere else…
Love a tiled table, me! It all sounds so rustic and irresistible!
