Lizzatura is one of the oldest methods, and even if it has been abandoned today, its history begins in ancient Egypt and reaches up to the 60s of the twentieth century.
The lizzatura allowed the movement of the marble blocks from the quarry to the valley. A method, mostly not easy and dangerous.
His process was not simple; not everyone was part of the team of fighters, since each role was important and decisive for the success of the transport.
Once the block was tied, by means of hemp ropes, it was slowly slipped on soapy wood (mostly beech wood), and made to descend along the streets of the lizza up to the square.
This operation could last for hours and required great physical and mental strength especially on the part of all the “fighters”, so much so that being part of the team was considered a great merit and honor.
