The evolution of the history of the world in a tile.When the European tectonic plate collided with the African plate, the Alps were formed. The ocean crust was pushed thousands of meters high, taking with it its colors, its influences, its soul.Today, millions of years later, it is not unusual to find a marine fossil while walking in the mountains. From the rocky walls of the Western Alps, in the Valle d’Aosta, alpine green marble is extracted, with its characteristic dark green color and its white veins, residues of what it once was: ocean.
Revisiting is experimenting. Experimenting is part of the process we are so devoted to at Fangorosa.
Our marble. Reduced to a minimum, in thicknesses and formats. Placed on a net and cut in its most improbable form, it becomes a sheet of small hexagons, which, like jewels set in a setting, recall the surfaces of precious Byzantine mosaics. A game between arts and matter, textures and shapes.
