This very special marble is extracted in the north of Tuscany, in the land of Carrara, only from a single mountain called Calacatta. This stone is famous for the bold dramatic grey veining on the pure white background. A lot of famous artists loved to carve their statues in this precious stone for the “uniformity” of the veining: Calacatta was the favorite marble of Michelangelo. We can find this white marble in churches, cathedrals and castles in every part of Europe, as the Basilica of Sacrè Coeur in Monmatre.
