Dozens centuries ago, the mankind discovered that the Apuan Alps concealing an endless resource of a white and compact marble,
unique in the world; since the origins it was obvious that the stone
was living and it was looking for their place in History,
by designing the most perfect figures, able to emulate and
to overcome the nature’s creation.

A stone which, like a living thing, turns and sublimates
depending of the light or of the eye of the beholder,
subject to be shaped, eroded, shattered, trampled, but - however - not destined to be ignored.

 

To discover the “arte del levare” directly inside the marble quarries,
into the same places visited by Donatello, Michelangelo and Canova ,
is practically a mystical experience, offering everyone the opportunity to rule and to mold the “sacred stone" of our forefathers , to know its nature and to involve all your 5 senses.
