THE HISTORICAL STONES

Cathedral of Pavia
The Ossolano marbles, even if moderate in quantity compared to others materials, have had, even in the past, a great utilization, because of their intrinsic features and thanks to the good viability that has allowed them to reach easily cities like Milan and Pavia. Apart from the Candoglia pink marble, the varieties can be found. With this marble are made the stones used for the construction of the Cathedral of Pavia, during the XIV century, and for the colonnade and the statues for the Arco della Pace (Peace Arc) in Milan.
