The major marble extraction companies of the territory are members of Garfagnana Innovazione:

  • Cooperativa Apuana Vagli,
  • Acquabianca Marmi,
  • Cave Focolaccia,
  • Bianco Royal,
  • Stone One.

The headquarters is located in a territory with high environmental values, in the Natural Park of Apuan Alps, near the lake of Gramolazzo and the historical centre of the village.


The initiative aims to be a way to increase the employment and the development in the entire area of Garfagnana withthe use high technology applied to stone processing in order to enhance advanced technologies and the manual skills that are traditionally used in these territories. Highly qualified staff has been employed, opening the field for collaborations with other people interested in this project.
