untamed matter

During the different stone processes – from extraction to transformation – part of the material is discarded, because it is considered imperfect or irregular, not functional for the traditional production.


Pietre Trovanti recovers the untamed matter – subject to a downcyling process – in the Verbano Cusio Ossola area, reintegrating it into a path of regeneration and positive transformation.

Appreciating stones offcuts means understanding them and recognising the inherent merit in their irregularity; this distinctive feature enhances their value and sense of profound, ancient authenticity. The differences in texture and nuances of colour are signs left on the materials over the centuries, the stratification and sedimentation that establish age and distinctiveness.
