Carrara Marble: discover the history of the famous white gold

Carrara was born in the foothills of the Apuan Alps and it’s considered the world capital of marble at date. World famous Carrara marble is still extracted from the quarries of Apuan Alps, each year tens of millions of tons of marble and other hard stones are mined and processed. Such ‚caves’ - the marble quarries - are a world apart, a unique breath-taking stretch of land suspended between the sea and the Apennines mountains peaks. The Great Michelangelo Bonarroti has created marvelous statues making large use of the precious marble of Carrara and his statues seem to possess their own soul. This experience will allow you to see the modern machinery used for marble excavation, you will be shown ruins from the Romanera. We will be entering into the heart of the quarry, where miners gather each morning to "split white rock." This is a dip inworking the story of a human activity that began about 2000 years ago.
