Real stone is the first building material in history and has given birth to roads, bridges, gardens, aqueducts, buildings, monuments, and works of art that bear witness to the beauty, the functionality, and the duration of a human architecture in harmony with nature. Today as then, marble, granite, limestone, and travertine, represent a universe of natural geo-diversity at the service of taste, style, and specific needs, both for man and for the environment.
Authentic, unique, and inimitable, natural stone expresses beauty, generates emotions, gives us well-being, and respects the planet
The environmental cost of a product depends on its “embodied energy”, that is, the sum of all the energy necessary for its marketing.
Real stone is a material found in nature in a practically finished form: the incorporated energy necessary to produce it, is, therefore, lower than in other building materials. Using local stones, the energy consumption, which is necessary to turn them into an investment, is further reduced due to the minimum cost of transport: one of the most impactful items in terms of energy and the main field responsible for greenhouse gas emissions.
Furthermore, natural stone has a great thermal inertia, which helps it maintain internal conditions for longer, with greater energy efficiency and less heat dispersion. This implies economic savings and greater environmental sustainability.
