“Marble has qualities such as long life, but it’s also a medium to express new shape, color and texture creativity,” says Davide Turrini, researcher and art director at Italian stone company Pibamarmi. Carrara is one of the most valued stones, he says, because it suggests sophistication and is “deeply rooted in history, well-established and universally recognized.”

“They say marble is full of charm because it’s an expression of nature: authentic, unique, unaffected by changing fashion, everlasting,” says Margherita Ricciardi, owner of marble product manufacturer Nice&Square.

“Marble fascinates us because it reflects the [desire] to go back to the value of long-lasting materials,” says industrial designer Raffaello Galiotto.
