    A cementitious render for covering the exterior of buildings, that can be formed into decorative mouldings. It is supposed to imitate stone, but is often painted to look like nothing on earth. Areas like London's Belgravia are wall to wall stucco.

    Many neo-classical architects had their own recipes for stucco (aka patent roman cements) and many of them failed spectacularly. It is usually cement and sand often with all sorts of strange additives. John Nash was a great exponent of stucco:

    'Augustus at Rome was for building renown'd, For of marble he left what of brick he had found;

    But is not our Nash, too, a very great master? He finds us all brick and he leaves us all plaster!'

    Groucho used stucco in a joke:

    “You can get any kind of house you want. You can get wood. You can get brick. You can get stucco. Boy, can you get stucco.”.
