Piasentina Stone Torreano
A noble material… with a great history
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 first evidence of the use of this marvellous stone dates back to Roman times, but in the centuries following it has customarily been used for the realisation of sculptures, buildings, and important monumental works, even by Palladio.
Today Piasentina stone is known as the Friulian stone par excellence, and is one of the most popular products in the field of architecture for its extraordinary colour shades and for its easy adaptation for use both inside and out.
