Colosseum and the Columnade of St. Peter’s Square in Rome, Sacre Coeur Basil in Paris, Getty Centre in Los Angeles and the Shell House in Berlin are made in travertine. This roman limestone since Ancient Roman times is a construction material used for cladding and flooring important buildings. The roman name was “Lapis tiburtinus” meaning stone from Tibur, the area near Rome where this timeless material is quarried. Travertine is appreciated also in contemporary architecture for the cream colored lines and the historical value.
