An unconventional style.
A Caribbean classic.
Botticino is an extremely compact carbonate rock with a very fine grain, and is renowned for its warm colour and the presence of fossils and golden veins, which have made it unmistakable and very famous.
Botticino Marble combines a unique chromaticity with excellent mechanical characteristics: high resistance to compression and bending, very low porosity, and a good level of hardness, making it a material that can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Being very easy to polish, it also acquires great brilliance and elegance when finished in this manner.
From New York to Tokyo, from Buenos Aires to Rome and Paris, the Botticino Classico has been used extensively throughout the whole world, lending its qualities to an array of very famous buildings and works.
These include Grand Central Station in Manhattan, a true New York icon, where Botticino Marble covers the grandiose interiors; also the Vittoriano in Rome, better known as the Altar of the Fatherland, an imposing building that has now become one of the symbols of the Eternal City.

Mario Botta: “I designed the body of the fly tower and the elliptical structure by simplifying the volumes as if they were technical towers, but with their own beneficial representation. I designed them in Botticino stone, which will have and give a surrounding vibration.”
