We must start from far away to understand the extensive history of our MARBLE BOTTICINO CLASSIC. The first to understand its qualities were the Romans, who used this material for construction in the ancient Brixia (e.g. the Roman Forum), monuments whose fascinating beauty we can still admire today. In more recent times the Botticino marble was used for famous buildings, such as for example the Altar of the Fatherland in Rome, a project tackled by the LOMBARDI FAMILY between 1885 and 1911, the White House in Washington, the Statue of Liberty and the Central Station of New York. The extreme compactness, with low values of absorption and porosity, makes the MARBLE BOTTICINO CLASSIC suitable for outdoor uses and determines its mechanical characteristics such as resistance to compression, flexion and wear. For its unquestionable beauty and its great qualities of strength, it is therefore considered a valuable marble.
