Discover with us the beauty of this precious material, which has always been used in the flooring and decoration of bathrooms and other rooms in the house.

Marble is one of the most sought after materials for surfaces. Italian marble in particular, is considered the most valuable in the world. There are many varieties, from the most classic to the very rare and special types.


The eternal beauty of marble derives first and foremost from its color, which often determines the degree of quality, but also from the quantity and arrangement of the veins, as well as the degree of compactness of the surface.

Elegance, versatility, functionality and resistance make this stone ideal for floors and walls in the home.

One hundred percent natural, ecological, free of toxic agents, marble is pleasant to the touch and eternally durable and capable of conveying excellent health qualities.

Furthermore, thanks to marble’s innate shine, it manages to make every room in the home bright and shiny. It has the advantage of illuminating the rooms, making them appear large and deeper, making the environments “timeless”, perfect for both classic style furnishings and contemporary trends.


Travertine marble is the most widely used type, both because it is abundantly present in Italy, and because it is easily workable. Often the protagonist of both the internal and external flooring of prestigious homes, this marble finds an ideal location in the bathrooms and solariums of swimming pools, not only for an aesthetic factor: travertine comes from limestone deposits coming from thermal water, therefore in contact with the water.

Enveloping and refined, this marble is perfect for ensuring that the bathroom environment can offer a pleasant sensorial experience.

Other types of marble such as Italian Carrara marble, the delicate pink marble of Portugal, biancone, the greenish marble, Iraqi yellow, the green of Guatemala and finally deep onyx, are used above all to “decorate” the tops of washbasins, particular sections of walls and to cover bathtubs.

Since marble is a unique raw material, as each slab is characterized by a particular and unique color and veining, the use of marble will make your home truly exclusive and infinitely personal: an investment of infinite duration, ready to give you eternal satisfaction.
