Marmi e Graniti d’Italia and Botticino join forces to promote the use of marble as a fine material

The promotion of the design culture applied to marble is one of the primary tasks of Marmi e Graniti d’Italia, a project also cherished by Botticino. Botticino is a city near Brescia that for years has been promoting its cultural and economic growth with the extraction and processing of marble. Botticino’s artistic heritage and the traditional craftsmanship vocation of the citizens have characterized the history and guided the future of this city. Not by chance, among the purposes of the competition is also a priority the enhancement of what distinguishes marble from any other natural material: non- reproducibility and territoriality.
