It is very nice to be able to appreciate the travertine installed on a wall or floor, to be able to admire its uniformity on the outside of a building. The warmth transmitted by this stone, the sensation given by that particular veining, which has been carefully selected among many samples and in different colours, make this stone really unique, inimitable and absolutely topical in its kind.
Travertine is a calcareous rock, of chemical origin, typical of central Italy, among the oldest used in the building world. Particularly famous is the one found near Rome in the area of the Aniene valley between Tivoli and Guidonia.
Lapis tiburtinus – stone from Tivoli – was formed by precipitation of calcium carbonate from water of karstic origin, has good qualities of hardness and mechanical resistance.
