You simply want to take out your wallet and take home more of the lovely artistic items. 'Life in this way is hard, but it is beautiful.' It is mind-blowing to know that every single item is made by the young owner. She can do everything, literally everything, from needle work, glass work, to metal work. And she studied restoration....

Pienza is the centre of ''artigiani'', craftsmen. You may find all kinds of professionalism, but one of the most special and artistic ones is the shop of Rafaella Zurlo, RI Crea Re. She makes unique pieces of very different kinds out of waste materials. Jewellery, ladies bags out of used jeans, sandblasted empty bottles with decorative designs, she is a... More

The owner informed us that all the items were made from recycled materials, which, upon closer inspection, made everything even more interesting. We bought three completely unique things and left with a... More

I love finding "real" shops in Italy that have non-trinkety keepsakes, and I found one in Pienza. Great and unique gifts—for me and for friends at home. What a treat to discover this shop on a side street. The proprietor is a sweetheart, too. Everything in the shop has been recycled from something that otherwise would be tossed in the... More

I love this little store. Set back on the side streets I was so happy I found it. The owner was really sweet and we chatted about her creativity and how she came up with the products. A little store I suggest everyone visiting should go to. It's amazing what she does with left over products. What a great way... More
