  • One cannot visit the Museum Fantiscritti, after the visit to the quarries, jobs and environment not to be missed ...

  • Listening for several visits to both external and internal marble quarries, tourists can spend an hour in a museum exhibition is evoked the history of Carrara marble extraction and especially of its most important protagonists the quarry workers who, with their unique sacrifice made this area of Italy. We start from the Roman period with the inscription on a stele found on site depicting the babies "knaves" with an inscription from which the name Fantiscritti and seems curiously the first engravers artistic artists were just as good savages on Canova!! I found it very interesting to see all the old equipment with which the quarrymen until the 50 's they extracted with unlikely fatigue life often marble or painful amputations (even limb were hairpieces in wood and iron) there were no insurance if not the benevolence of the owner of the quarry in case. Reconstruction of the ancient House with furniture, tools and antique beds of excavators. No, I still can't figure out how to do to carry up to tens of tons of Rock Valley. I didn't know the stele now present at the Foro Italico in Rome built by Mussolini (still there is his name) was cut here and taken with 20 pairs of oxen downstream,,,, one precisely everything could be arranged better inside or covered with a canopy is to preserve it better both for the enjoyment of tourists could also pay a higher amount for entry (now are 2 euros to offer).
