Museo Civico del Marmo


Inaugurated in 1982 to document the culture of marble, the Museo Civico del Marmo is in effect home to the city’s historical memory.

Its displays include archaeological finds from the quarries as well as samples of tools used from Roman times until today to extract and work the marble. With its new multimedia space, the museum hosts exhibitions and conferences that highlight the inseparable bond between material culture, historical memory and contemporary culture.

The museum itinerary winds through various sections – both indoors and out – which document contemporary techniques of cutting and shaping marble, using prototypes and exemplary works, many donated by sculptor Felice Vatteroni.
