Botticino Semiclassico marble

Botticino Semiclassico marble is beige coloured material with few veins and, in rare cases, with lighter intrusions. It is less valuable than Botticino Classico although it is often used associated with it due to its greater availability in Botticino municipality and its surrounding area.

Botticino marble is a quality known all over the world since ancient times, it was already used by the Romans in the 1st century BC in the construction of capitals in forums. In more recent times it has been used, combined with the more valuable but less available Botticino Classico marble in the construction of symbolic buildings and monuments, such as the Altare della Patria in Rome, the white house in Washington, the Statue of Liberty and central station in new york.

The marble Botticino extraction site is located in a specific area in the Brescia region where you can find about a hundred quarries, of which only twelve are based in the Classico area, in Botticino municipality.
