Vicenza stone is our local, traditional stone, the one we most often work.
This absolutely natural product, quarried in the Berici hills, lying just a short distance from the city, originated from the sedimentation of a coral reef present millions of years ago in the area. Still today, fossils and marine sediments can be seen in the stone’s slight nuances of colour. They bear witness to the history of the local area and this entirely natural formation process, giving the stone its unique qualities.
Vicenza stone is termed soft due to its workability, a highly appreciated characteristic since the time of the Renaissance, leading to its development over the centuries into a key construction material.
The stone was highly valued by the architect Andrea Palladio who exploited its features in his best known architectural masterpieces, including Villa Almerico Capra Valmarana, also known as “The Rotonda”, the Basilica and the Olympic Theatre… to mention but a few.
Over the years, our experience and passion have built our vast knowledge of each stone. Our attention to customers’ needs also permits us to advise on various types of marble, allowing us to achieve the best craftsmanship possible.
