From the quarry to a piece of art


Visit the Museum Danesi, a private collection of ancient instruments and pictures, where we will learn about marble excavation techniques and means of transportation from the Roman Age up to today.

Marble is not used solely for art but also in everyday life and food production. Learn how lardo from Colonnata, the savoury local delicacy, is traditionally aged into big marble vats at a typical lard workshop.

I Protagonisti

Be welcomed by the Danesi family at their Cava Museo, an open-air private collection about the history of marble, founded in 1987 by the quarryman Walter Danesi.

Meet master sculptors at their atelier where you will be shown their instruments and can admire them skillfully chiselling marble blocks.
