Carrara and the world of marble

The ancient Romans started 2000 years ago the excavation and manufactoring of this white and shiny stone, after them many others followed their footsteps up to those valleys to find and learn more about marble.
Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, Donatello, Michelangelo, Bernini, and generations of architects, scultors and designers used this unique stone for their works of art.

Look right into your town, there is certainly something made out of Carrara marble! If so, please send me a picture of it.
