Come to “FANTISCRITTI” in the heart of the Carrara Marble Basin. With its scenic landscape immersed in white marble, this is a truly unique location beyond compare.

Here the “Marmo Tour” staff will guide you down into the centre of the Apuan Alps to discover the most beautiful QUARRY CARVED DEEP INTO THE MOUNTAIN.

The guided tour lasts for about 30 minutes. The first section (of approximately 600 meters) will be conducted from the confines of the tour bus. Once inside the Ravaccione Quarry, you will be talked through the processes of cutting and pulling of the marble blocks. The setting is almost lunar in appearance and the quarry is known as the MARBLE CATHEDERAL due to its vast and cavernous rooms. Everyone is catered for here and there is good disabled access.
It is truly enchanting!

For the recent unveiling of a new marque, the car manufacturer MASERATI. chose our beautiful quarry as the ideal backdrop. The famous design NAPAPJRI even held a fashion show here with catwalk models parading down the blocks of marble. It is also LAMBORGHINI intention to use our quarry to promote their latest supercar.
Even the President of the Republic Signor CIAMPI and his wife, Signora Franca came to visit us and were left genuinely stunned and amazed.

It is incredible to believe what the owner of the quarry, Signor Carlo Dell’Amico, has been able to achieve here. Precision cuts, clean smooth surfaces.
He was the pioneer of this style of quarrying, and at that time, the most important and respected businessmen of the day did not believe it would become a successful business.
He has succeeded beyond all their expectations, and today Signor Dell’Amico is widely envied for what he has been able to achieve.
