This thread is awesome Sub. Keep on adding more pics & info, thank you. I have some questions for you.

Do you know name of the craftsman who builds "Forno Napoletano" ovens?

From this article: Word of mouth: Giuseppe Mascoli, Brixton's pizza king

and Giuseppe Mascoli book Franco Manca: Artisan Pizza to Make Perfectly at Home

The name of the artisan is Mastro Ciccio.

hi, yes this thread has most of the answers to the queries a beginner has, be it steel table, hearth, insulation, door , vents. if somebody could post timeline for various stages the oven takes shape it would be great starting from the soldier to the final cladding after isulation and curing stages. my steel table is underway and i want to plan the approx completion time

Pretty cool to see clay block being used for the base...it seems to be easier to get products like that everywhere but the states. I've been looking for structural clay tile and haven't had much success outside of a couple websites.

Yes it is very common among us as autoclaved aerated concrete blocks ( Ytong )

You can see some pictures of the fabrication process here: Fornace Laterizi Carena

I like the use of newspaper on top of the sand form.

Frankly, I'm surprised it's not done more often.

For the life of me, I don't see the sense of using salt in the building process.  Everything I know about masonry says that makes zero sense..even though they are constructed inside, and there is little chance of water intrusion.

They are heavily traditional, sometimes to the detriment of what they are building.

Maybe it's for the pie moisture when baking or to keep the biscotto at temperature, I'm not sure either.

Thermal Conductivity                        - k - W/(m.K)     
Sand, dry                                     0.15 - 0.25
Sodium Chloride  NaCl at 400 K        4.85

1 W/(m.K) = 1 W/(m.oC) = 0.85984 kcal/(hr.m.oC) = 0.5779 Btu/(ft.hr.oF)



Some links for the bricks:

La Fornace Sorbo Antonio

LA.RE.K.

I'm feeling like the scaling that Omid mentioned on his thread has something to do with salt.
