The Botticino marble quarries are part of the excellence of our Country and are characterized by the presence of one of the most appreciated marble varieties worldwide. The Botticino marble quarries are in the province of Brescia, in a mountainous area in the municipalities of Nuvolento, Nuvolera, Serle and Botticino. The region is known for an important wine consortium, for its hosiery factories, for a restoration school and for the historic marble Museum, born in 1996 thanks to the commitment of a volunteer team. The Botticino marble quarries form an authentic delicacy not only at local level, but also at national level. Their virtue is especially due to a series of really rare chromatic, ivory white veins. It is a type of marble extremely strong and resistant, very suited for every type of architectural construction both indoor and outdoor.

It is fundamental the safeguard of the whole deposit of Botticino quarries, which must be guaranteed through a work aimed at reducing risks and at a production that must exceed a standard number of tons every year in order to offer an efficient and constant service.


Botticino marble blocks

The Botticino marble blocks correspond to big pieces of Botticino marble that are extracted from various veins in the area of the Prealpi of Brescia, especially from the Nuvolera, Botticino, Serle and Rezzato quarries. They are limestone blocks characterized by a uniform beige color, with the presence of few light brown veins. It is a type of marble totally unique in its genre, as the aforementioned veins can create with the basic color a very refined and delicate composition, hard to find even in the other types of marble extracted from nearby zones. The Botticino marble blocks are very useful to make slabs of different sizes and, if well tested, they can be exported gross or sawn to be then transformed in finished products or slabs. The marble of these Botticino blocks can be very suited for both outdoor and indoor cladding. With an appropriate cut, the Botticino blocks can be turned into in slabs, with a high resistance to impact and a long-lasting efficiency thanks to its resistance to wear and tear.

Before we talk about Botticino light marble, we cannot exempt from giving a quick description of the Botticino marble, a quality of beige/white limestone that is extracted from the quarries in the province of Brescia, in the municipalities of Serle, Nuvolento and Nuvolera. It is extracted from the Nuvolento quarries and it is distinguished by its uniform color and structure which is absolutely crystalline. The formation of these deposits of Botticino light marble dates way back to the Jurassic period and it settled during the Cretaceous era. These marbles were generated by the sedimentation and consolidation of limestone sludge, which formed inside various lagoons dating back to the Mesozoic era. However, the high value of this marble was discovered only in the later period, as the first extractions were made during the 20th century and its qualities have not been totally used/exploited yet. The Botticino light marble value increases due to its rarity, as only few quarries that have this variety of marble . This marble is so ductile that can be combined with any other variety of marble, thanks to its elevated gleam and limpidity. Its very light color makes it possible to combine it with any other chromatic effect and can enhance any type of combination. The Botticino light marble can be used for many types of coverings, floors with quite big tiles and for indoor and outdoor works. It can be brushed, sandblasted, glossy, polished, striped, rolled, bush hammered and hammered.
