Ancient material for contemporary design
GEARED TOWARDS EXCELLENCE
In 1977 Giuseppe Pino, an expert seller of Carrara marbles, takes over the GM Fabbricotti company which owns the historic “Calacata” quarry n ° 10.
The operation continues in the heart of Cava Calacata N ° 10 where the excavation takes place. In this Cava are extracted two unique Apuan marbles, the Calacata Mezza Macchia Fabbricotti and Calacata Macchia Oro Fabbricotti. These are some of the finest marbles, mainly used for the construction of large and prestigious architectural projects, including banks and shopping centers in the United States, luxurious bathrooms in the suites of forty Ritz Carlton-USA hotels with the architect Frank Nicholson, an embassy of the Sultanate of Brunei and the coverings for the iconic Grand Hyatt Hotel in Shanghai (China).In 2005, Roberto Pino, Giuseppe’s son, with now 40 years of experience in the natural stone sector, takes over the company’s leadership.
