The company was born 16 years ago but the company has been is in the sector of stone manufacturers for four generations. The Lecce stone is a versatile, ductile and cosmopolitan limestone, indeed since the XVII century the local artists and the architects have been able to make it the most of the quality. This stone is a calcareous rock rich in fossils dating to Myocene period, which exhibits a fine but homogenous and compact grain. It is prevalently composed of a mixture of fossils and calcareous fragments immersed in calcitic cements. The different percentages of the components determine the variations in colour, grain size and homogeneity of the stone. The most important varieties are: cream, white and grey. Quarrying has remained unvaried for centuries even if nowadays a system of high tech machinery helps reducing the rock to prismatic blocks. The limestone quarried from the upper strata, is particularly malleable and is used for sculptures and architectural decorations. Which gave birth to the myth of Lecce Baroque. The deeper layers of the quarry produce instead a more resistant variety of limestone particularly used for coverings and pavings. The company owns about 30 acres of quarry from which the stone is extracted and subsequently processed producing: - exterior flooring (suitable for gardens, villas and squares); - interior flooring; - tumbled flooring; - balustrades; - cornice; - sorrounds; - wall-copings; - slabs, raw squared limestone slabs; - blocks, large quarried blocks in several sizes for multiple applications; - arches.
