Michelangelo would visit the Carrara quarries to personally select the blocks of marble from which to extract his works. Yes, because each block of marble already contains the potential that will be realized through an act. In the blocks that Michelangelo selected, he already saw his David, his Piet??, his Moses.In the same way we see in the Carrarese monoliths our rectangles, squares, hexagons, octagons, and small squares. They are there waiting for us, ready to be stripped of their heavy marble clothing to come to light, in a process that is more Socratic than productive.Praise to the most classic of classics.
HexagonNothing is born from diamonds. Flowers are born from manure.From the cold anonymity of the hexagonal cement tiles of public buildings, we have created a marble surface. A shape that has rarely, and unfortunately, encountered this material, an idea that is as equally unexpected as well thought out and well developed, exactly like the final result. Predictability is boring.
