We market and the wonderful work Luserna Stone

Ideal for urban pavement (slabs, curbs Pavement, trottatoi, cunettoni) or construction (slabs for balconies, corbels, steps, risers, sills, jambs and lintels), covers (lose from the roof) and funerary building.

The Luserna stone is a metamorphic shale belonging to the group of gneiss and is extracted from quarries located in the Cottian Prealps of Piedmont central-western. Its use is very old and still characterizes the type of construction of buildings and street furniture in the source areas and the entire Piedmont, from which, since the early 70's' 900, had a spread both nationally and internationally.

The Luserna Stone, the extraction of which is documented by the middle of the seventeenth century, has been used as a building material since ancient times, also as an element for masonry and noble uses as the external paving of the royal palaces of Turin, Racconigi and Venaria Real.
