The Vicenza Stone
The Material is called Nanto or Vicenza Stone and it has always been one of the most used stone in Veneto Villas and Garden; one of the
greatest exponent of the use of Vicenza Stone has been the famous architect Andrea Palladio. The material is mined from quarries in the Berici hills near Vicenza, so as not to spoil the hilly scenery of our landascape, being a sedimentary stone, it is characterized by the presence of fossils, shells and spots of oxides which are not to be considered as lessening its valve or beauty but as somothing which makes evident and enhance its naturalness and materiality. The Vicenza Stone, like all sedimentary stone is suitable for sculptures and benefits from a na tural hardening process with time.

There are witnesses about the use of this stone till the roman period, at least in the zone around Vicenza. Only since Middle Ages there is its systematic utilization in the building, in the ornamentation and in the sculpture. It was a big diffusion since half of the XIV century until the first decades of the XVI century. It was used by the major sculptors and architects of Renaissance and of all the '600, from Palladio to
Falconetto, from Sanmicheli to Sansovino.
