    Parati

    BOX SET - 6 pieces
    Chef Michele Mancini design Tribute to the traditional Lizzatura of the marble blocks: the "PARATI" Lizzatura is an Italian word to describe a method of transport, used since the beginning of the fourteen century by Carrara’s quarrymen to slide the marble block just extracted, from the quarry yard known as “il Poggio” to the yard downstream. To carry out these maneuvers, the expert men who made up the team of “lizzatori” used various tools including the "Parati" small wooden planks that were placed under the block, perpendicular to the way down and added to the front as the load dropped, allowing it to slide without crossing obstacles. The historical Lizzatura is for the city of Carrara an event full of traditions that take place every year in the evocative setting of Ponti di Vara.

Marble is perfect in its imperfection…

Sincèro from the Latin SINCERUS, that the ancients said consisting of SIN-E without and CERA wax, and therefore frank, pure, without faking, not artificial, not forged…referred to a person who speaks and acts following and expressing what one feels and thinks, without pretending or faking and without reluctance.

In ancient Rome it used to be common practice to hide fractures in the marble of statues by introducing some wax in the cracks in order to conceal the defect and therefore give the impression of perfection. However the most valuable works of art were not touched up, leaving them “sin-cera” (without wax) as evidence that beauty does not necessarily reflect perfection and that a sincerity of soul and intentions has a much greater value than a false perfection.

Marble is unique and does not repeat itself; everybody tries to imitate it but marble does not wish to look like any other material

Marble is natural and cannot be manufactured. It can only be worked.
Marble is recyclable and can always be re-used. The object that you see one day may become gravel, mosaic, opus incertum, road foundation or just an element to produce other products.
Unlike other materials it ages well; over time this natural stone acquires charm and does not survive events. It rather passes them down.

It is not an effect…it is just marble.
