Cassino Stone extracts Calacatta marble directly from Carrara mountains, in Versilia and in Garfagnana, historic sites for the extraction of this material and among the best sites in the world for the quality of the marble. Calacatta marble is a fine-grained marble that is characterized by pure white slabs crossed by oblique veins shaded in the colors of light yellow and gray.
There are many different varieties of Calacatta marble and it is exactly the veins that define the quality of this very valuable material, which has always been used for interior furnishings: floors, wall coverings, bathroom furnishings, but for design elements as well.
It is the most valuable white marble, the one that has always been used by artists for their works because of its brilliance and compact structure, perfect for being worked with a chisel. In particular, it is a marble used for floors, statues, fireplaces, but also design objects that immediately give brilliance to the spaces.
Our statuary marble comes from the quarries of Carrara; the sobriety and the particular elegance that characterize the stone material extracted in this area, which can express the beauty of the Carrara mountains at its best, and are able to unleash the creativity of artists, designers and architects.
The marble quarry used by Michelangelo for his sculptures is still active and is located in the province of Lucca on Monte Altissimo where it was discovered by the artist in 1517. Even today, Cassino Stone LTD extracts its high-quality marbles from this site; this marble was defined by Michelangelo himself as having “a compact, homogeneous, crystalline grain” and he compared it to sugar.
