Thread: My birthplace

    Default My birthplace

    Hi everybody, I was surfing the web and found out this nice Forum
    I'd like to put here some pics from Carrara, northern Tuscany , where i was born.

    It is a pity that just very few tourists come over here, despite its tradition of white marble handycrafts.
    However, let me tell you that all the columns, statues and any other stuff made of white marble comes from Carrara, Michelangelo's sculptures included.
    We export everywhere: US, UAE, everybody there's a request of white marble...

    I decided to put some pics portraiting the marble caves and the "journey" marble makes: from the cave, to factories to artist.

    Then, some pics of Carrara and its sybol: the wheel.Click image for larger version.

    Amazing that the mountains are made of such pure white stone (looks like snow). What geological events led to this phenomenon?
