The Trambiserra Quarry, source of the great mineral richness, is in the area of Seravezza, Pietrasanta, and it covers a surface of over 400.000 square meters, surrounded by an evocative landscape which offers a very wide horizon which reaches the open sea.
The Trambiserra Quarry is a unique landscape which speaks of infinite suggestions and an admirable history that saw, in a remote past, the best sculptors, like Michelangelo Buonarroti, coming here to choose the blocks to be sculpted personally.
The admirable history of the place tells that the master Michelangelo took the marble blocks he needed to realize the façade of the Basilica di San Lorenzo in Florence right here in this Quarry. The marbles and bardiglio marbles used for the façade of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, still in Florence, were quarried later in this area.
You must know that, back in those days, the marbles were kept in the then indistinct area of Forte dei Marmi which started to develop thanks to this activity. Over the years, the best sculptors have come in this Quarry and generally in this area, to choose the marbles to shape into their artistic creations.
