Raspanti’s Pietra Serena sandstone
The pietra serena sandstone is being extracted by Raspanti family since 1953 in Piancaldoli, a lovely place on the Appenine hills, between the provinces of Bologna and Florence. The family Raspanti has been in the pietra serena business for more than 60 years. The extraction of the sandstone is made by the owners of the caves directly. Then, thanks to the cooperation of very skilled banker masons the sandstone is worked into different manufacts, objects, architectural elements.
