DESCRIPTION
 
HALF A CENTURY OF QUALITY CARVED IN MARBLE
calacatta vagliCOMPANY

Cooperativa Apuana started life in 1954 to promote and innovate the ancient tradition of excavation widespread in the Vagli area since time immemorial. The company has dedicated almost 60 years to marble, a "timeless material" which for centuries has profoundly characterized architecture and the history of art, and it is this "secular tradition" that defines the company and the way it operates.
Cooperativa Apuana works one of the oldest quarries in Tuscany and, as the number one marble production company in Lucca and surrounding areas, is a point of reference for the entire sector.



STRUCTURE

Cooperativa Apuana has modern and efficient infrastructures and runs two storage facilities in which visitors can choose and appreciate the wide range of available products.
The large, very old extraction basin is divided into four operating sites from which different materials are excavated. Advanced mechanical equipment used at each site guarantee that every phase of the extraction process is effectly carried out, meeting quality standards and business requirements set by the company. Keeping constantly up to date with excavation and processing technology and having a high level of professional workmanship, means Cooperativa Apuana's yearly production rate exceeds 40 tons of natural and colored marble combined.
A partnership with a reliable transport company guarantees on-time, efficient delivery.




ACHIEVEMENTS
 
A large selection of marble products, in both the natural and colored ranges, which include the renowned Calacatta Vagli and Arabescato Vagli, have been used worldwide in many, diverse ways. World famous architects in sectors ranging from the industrial to the civil and residential have chosen Cooperativa Apuana marble for use in works of historical and architectural importance, such as the Vatican's "Aula Paolo VI" ("Aula Nervi").
The superior quality and special characteristics of the marble have been widely acknowledged particularity by international artists, who have used it to create important works of sculpture for private and public collections all over the world.
