Description

The Colosseum stone is a precious stone with an alveolar structure that highlights the uniqueness of natural stone, recalling the classical and baroque architecture of Ancient Rome. In fact, since ancient times it was used for the construction of buildings. We find Colosseum stone in many important Roman’s monuments known in the world for example Piazza San Pietro’s colonnade, the Fontana di Trevi and the Piazza Navona’s fountains.
The Colosseum, due to its delicate background’s color from ivory to light hazelnut become the interiors of modern, classic or contemporary design. Travertine is a very durable and resistant stone and can be used in outdoor projects, gardens, parks and much more.
