Here’s Where the Marble for Classic Sculptures Comes From
Off the coast of Tuscany sits a picturesque town where white mountains cascade over the landscape. Composed of the highest quality marble, these behemoths have attracted artists to Italy’s Pietrasanta for years. In fact, many of Michelangelo’s masterpieces were sculpted out of this very marble in the 15th century. Today, over 40 marble studios still exist within the city, with artisans leaving their own unique mark on the cherished marble. Join us as we explore the beauty of the City of Marble.
