The Carrara region is globally recognized as the homeland of the most exclusive white marbles, with hundreds of active quarries that have a history dating back to Roman times.
Carrara white marble is primarily composed of calcite, a calcium carbonate mineral. This marble originated from the sedimentation of marine organism remains that accumulated on the seafloor and later underwent intense pressure and temperature over millions of years. This metamorphic process transformed the original limestone rocks into a white and crystalline marble stone appreciated for its purity and beauty.
