Why choose Piasentina stone

Piasentina stone, a natural stone from the foothills of the north-east area of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region in the province of Udine, has always fascinated designers and its applications seem to underlie the reassuring promise of eternity for which mankind has worked for thousands of years in its most representative products.

It has adapted to lifestyles and social customs to such an extent that it has become a witness over time, the Piasentina stone is an expression of that close bond with our land and our culture.
Using natural stone is therefore not the same as using any other material, it never remains anonymous, but on the contrary it tells us about the past, which is still alive and which we come from.

In its reappearance it looks different each time, becoming an expression of the duality that sometimes opposes, but more often integrates, “local” to “global dynamics”.
Even when it is cut into tiles, it never becomes a standardised product, but it accounts for the unique mechanisms of genesis and variety of genres that distinguish it, as well as the craftsmanship of most of its methods of processing and laying.

Advantages of using Piasentina stone

Erroneously called Pietra Piacentina or Pietra Piasentina Torreano

The variety of the mineralogical composition and the countless possibilities deriving from the processing methods make the range of possible finishes really immense.
The stone is therefore the natural material par excellence that gives architecture multiple potentials, always allowing a harmonious comparison with any other material and any context.

The Piasentina stone is strong

It has the best ratio of maximum allowable load to minimum wear; it does not show visible signs of wear on claddings even after decades of use.

The Piasentina stone ages well

Like a fine wine, only at the peak of its maturation, it acquires its entirety. Natural stone is extremely long-lasting. A careful design and an accurate installation contribute to preserving the product over time.
