For centuries, Italy has produced some of the most breathtaking, classic and sustainable marbles of the world. Buildings, streets, cities and monuments throughout history and around the world have used, and continue to use marble to tell their story. The generations of Italian families that have worked in these quarries, cooked and baked in their marble kitchens and sculpted their marble statues are a testament to the resiliency of both the Italian Marble industry and their culture itself. Don’t be afraid of marble for function or design. Try to understand that like all materials, it has certain limitations. There are easy to apply sealers in the market today that allow us to embrace these limitations and enjoy the beauty and history of marble, while dissipating our fears. To learn more about easy to use sealers, consult your designer, fabricator, or any Natural Stone professional. Imagine..Design..Create it.. with Stone. #italianmarble #imaginerealstone #italianmarbles #usenaturalstone
