La Facciata is one of Campolonghi Group’s quarries in the marble mountains of Torano in Carrara, at Ravaccione. For over 130 years, the quarry has provided a white marble much appreciated for its aesthetic and structural qualities and suitable for any type of work.
La Facciata covers 100 thousand square metres and extracts about 25 thousand tons of material per year in the Bianco La Facciata and Bardiglio Nuvolato Apuano varieties. Among the most important architectural creations achieved in La Facciata white marble, the Opera House in Oslo is worthy of mention. All the indoor flooring and external cladding of the spectacular theatre were made from it. The result is breathtaking: it emerges like an elegant marble iceberg from the waters of the fjord.
