THE SYMPHONY OF NATURAL STONE....

Italian artist and filmmaker Yuri Ancarani captures the otherworldly landscape of a marble quarry in the Apuan Alps, Northwest Italy, as Il Capo (The Chief) guides his men through the extraction process.

NATURAL STONE IS ANCIENT AND IGNEOUS - FORMED OVER CENTURIES BY EXTREME HEAT OR VOLCANIC ASH OR IN THE CASE OF LIME STONE THROUGH THE ACTION OF ANCIENT WATERS AND GREAT PRESSURE. GEOLOGICAL ACTIVITY BELOW THE EARTHS’ SURFACE PRODUCES HARD ROCK FORMATIONS. ONCE RECLAIMED FROM THE FOSSILIZED EARTH, NATURAL STONES ARE CUT TO REVEAL THEIR AUTHENTICALLY BEAUTIFUL ONE-OF-A-KIND SURFACES. POLISHED OR HONED, THEY EXHIBIT A HUGE VARIETY OF INDIVIDUALIZED COLOUR, VEINING AND VARIATION MAKING EACH UNIQUELY STRONG AND SPECIAL.
