marmol travertino romano

Roman Travertino Marble


The Roman Travertino Marble is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate and originated millions of years ago by the deposits of rivers and springs that give it a unique and timeless beauty.

The first examples of resistance and magnificent decorative qualities of this natural stone can be found in ancient Rome, where monuments and churches built with travertine have withstood the test of time and still retain their elegance and majesty.
