Marble is valuable, delicate, demanding and capricious at the same time. Whoever works with it needs a certain sense in his fingertips and an exact eye measure. He needs the feeling and knowledge which grows over generations, technical abilities and a sublime subtlety and empathy in order to work this treasure of our earth correctly. Whether a block has to be loosened inch by inch out of the mountain side or it is the final creative work of a sculptor, the King of the stone is always demanding the fullest concentration and a whole man. The working of marble, in the course of time, has created its own type of men – the marmista.
