Blocks / Slabs
The territory of Carrara and its prestigious marble deposits are famous all over the world.
Excavation, already existing in Roman times, dates back to the 1st century B.C. and in some quarries traces of extraction from that era are still visible.
A great deal of Italian history owes its century-long fame to the marble of Carrara extracted in the Apuan Alps, and over the centuries this prestigious marble has decorated many religious and civil buildings.
Statuario, Statuarietto, venato Betogli, Bardiglio, Paonazzo and Calacatta are the main materials renowned for their beauty.
In particular, bianco Statuario stands out from the others due to its natural colour, bianco ghiaccio (cool white); the fact that it can be found in so few places in the marble basins of Carrara is one of the reasons why it is so precious.
The marble is available in blocks, both irregular and square, medium and large or in slabs trimmed on two or four sides with a standard 2 or 3 cm thickness.
The blocks allow large volume “solid-block” processing, while the slabs can be processed to create a “book matched” pattern suitable for large surfaces.
