Why Carrara Marble?
Carrara marble is a type of white or blue-grey marble of high quality, popular for use in sculpture and building decor. It is quarried at the city of Carrara in the province of Massa and Carrara in the Lunigiana, the northernmost tip of modern-day Tuscany, Italy. The marble from Carrara was used for some of the most remarkable buildings in Ancient Rome, such as the Pantheon and Trajan’s Column in Rome. Many sculptures of the Renaissance, such as Michelangelo’s David (1501–04), were carved from Carrara marble. For Michelangelo at least, Carrara marble was valued above all other stone, except perhaps that of his own quarry in Pietrasanta.
