them with a needle-nose pliers.
Special tiles (Coppi): For the complex covering
it has been used 70000 special tiles (Coppi), sliced

the final form. For this operation it has been used
a pedal balance with a tip inserted in a specific mould.
Windows: the 1500 windows has been realized in some
parts by hands and in some parts cutted with an automatic
punching machine, and then finalized by hands with a file
