Sculptor, who deals with the selection of materials and follows the client in design and creative development
Since childhood, Marco has experienced a close relationship with the world of marble and attended, with his brother Carlo, the historical “Scuola d’arte” ("School of Art"), bastion of the age-old tradition of stone masonry, of Vallata del Chiampo. His love and passion for this noble material led from a young age to his acquisition of impressive skills and ability in chisel sculpture.
The works, capitals and moulding sculpted by Marco clearly show his care for detail and strong but delicate touch, which make this sculptor so outstanding in his unique approach to stone.

A technical expert in working marble and head of the production workshop, Carlo supervises all technical aspects and work on site
Carlo, along with his brother, was born and grew up among quarries and blocks of marble, cultivating an immense passion for this acclaimed material, to soon become a craftsman and technical expert in stone masonry and sculpture. Backed by a love of creative challenges, his greatest pleasure is found in more complex projects, where he can unleash his special skills in technical design, an ability to select raw materials and his incredible talent
in using applied technology.
His strength undoubtedly lies in the production of marble columns, which thanks to his skilful use of the lathe, he can produce in any size.
