Innovation and Tradition
Craftsmanship and cutting-edge technologies
The culture of extraction
The processing methods of the Sermattei company combine technological innovation with the artisan experience handed down by three generations of quarrymen. Special attention is given to systems and equipment with state-of-the-art safety and technology systems.
Each phase of the marble excavation, following the natural cracks in the rock until the next cut, is monitored and followed in close contact with the workers. A difficult and delicate job that is carried out through a “family” management that sees the team of quarrymen, headed by the foreman, united for six months a year, from May to October. The internal staff live together in the quarrymen’s house: a refuge set on a high yoke in the Apuan Alps on the slopes of the Tambura.
