Calacatta Classico

Calacatta is a precious Italian marble, quarried in Tuscany, in the Apuan Alps. Its bottom is crystalline white and its veins are gray; it is a sober and elegant material that can adapt to any type of setting and context, from classic to modern. The scenographic aspect of its unique grains make it ideal for luxurious settings, for minimal objects and can be combined with other materials, such as wood and metal.

Calacatta was also used in the Renaissance era for interior furnishings and luxury objects.
