Mimmo Paladino and Marmi Ghirardi-G1938: poetic vision and executive mastery come together in “Ouverture”.
Nero Marquina is also used in the artistic field for structural elements—such as columns and pilasters—as well as for valuable ornamental objects, for example in liturgical settings.
Last but not least, a degree of classical preciousness, almost reminiscent of ancient aristocratic splendour, but which opens up to a completely modern implementation, where the elegance of the material combines with the current taste for minimalism and the intrinsic value of natural products. The same tonality enhances the characteristics of each type of environment—from the largest to the smallest—and also enhances the colour and tactile relationship with any artifact, from glass to metals, from wood to textiles. Nero Marquina interprets the very soul of the nobility of marble.
