La Bottega del Marmoraro, Rome
Tel: 39 06 320 7660
Concierge.com's insider take:
It's not difficult to imagine Enrico Fiorentini draped in a toga and chipping bits off marble blocks for proud consuls and exotically perfumed Roman matrons. This welcoming, raucous marble-working shop personifies the Roman craftsman—today and 2,000 years ago—and this tiny spot on an ivy-draped street, otherwise populated by chic galleries, is quite timeless. Fiorentini will make you a "classical" statue or (far easier to carry) lapidary inscription to order.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 8:30 am to 7:30 pm.
