Abstract

The Marbles sensu stricto of the Mt. Altissimo region form an important district in the central Apuane Alps and were exploited in many quarries active up to some decades ago. The marble varieties are characterized by high quality physical-mechanical properties often joined with very appreciated ornamental features. At present only two large quarries are active. The most important is the Cervaiole quarry, from which decorative arabesque marbles are extracted ; the La buca quarry has been reactivated a few years ago and shows high potentiality of development principally toward the underground production. - (NF)
