Breccia Capraia quarry is in Tuscany, in the heart of Apuan Alps, in the province of Massa-Carrara, between Mounts Altissimo and Carchio. There, Nature created an exclusive material, Fior di Pesco Classico Apuano, well known since Roman times due to its rarity. Later on, the Medici Family started to appreciate these marbles and used them to embellish Florence during the Renaissance period. Today, this extraordinary material is employed worldwide in many important contemporary architecture projects, from America to Middle East and Asia.
