White Carrara marble (Italy)
The famous White Carrara marble (or Bianco Carrara in Italian) is quarried from the mountains in the region surrounding the town of Carrara, from which its name is taken. Carrara is located in the province of Massa-Carrara in the Tuscany region of Northern Italy. These marble quarries, which have been used since Roman times, owe a large part of their fame to the sculptures of Michelangelo, who was famously quoted as saying: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free”.
The Ateliers Sansone proposes a wide range of products in White Carrara marble; for regular or occasional use, and made to measure for interior decoration or one-off projects.
