Letting tradition grow

Everything began way back in 1948. Nicola Bagnara founded a small stonemason company in Appiano in Northern Italy. A great deal of diligence, hard work, and great passion for natural stone have allowed us to grow over the course of three generations into one of the most successful international natural stone companies in the world. In addition to a number of locations in Northern Italy (around Verona) we distinguish ourselves through an efficient, international purchasing and sales network which is active in, among other places, Australia, Scandinavia, Korea, the USA, Africa, and Brazil. In spite of our constant growth, our traditional company has continued to remain a family operation that is socially committed.
