The world of marble is not only the extraction or the processing of a stone, but the history of a region and its population which have always been synonymous with the marble.
The quarries, the techniques and the “History”, of course, but also the ancient villages of the quarrymen, its customs, its language, the food and the daily “history”.
Our guided tours in the marble quarries, sculpture workshops, saw mills and laboratories are giving you, in absolute safety, the direct contact with the places, the people, the tools, the machines and the daily activities of an ancient wisdom.
Come with us in the quarrymen villages to taste the typical dishes of the local tradition or in the historical center of Carrara, unexpected and unique, to discover where the sculpture of Michelangelo and Canova was born.
