Piasentina Stone

Our Material

The denomination "Piasentina Stone" derives from an amusing anecdote originating from Friuli, according to which the major contractors of Udine described it in the local dialect as "una pietra che la piase" - "a stone that pleases", as it was extremely appreciated for both its physical and aesthetic qualities.

The appearance of Piasentina stone is grey in colour, with light white veining and small coloured flashes tending to brown. It responds to different surface working with slight chromatic changes, ranging from the light grey of the sawn surface, to a dark grey after polishing, thus enabling different aesthetic combinations to be achieved through the utilization of the same material.

No other type of stone can be truly comparable to Piasentina, which lends itself to any kind of use, from building cladding to the creation of design objects and art works.

In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous
