Since 1946, Salvatori has worked closely with architects, designers and builders to provide not only practical support, but also inspiring new ways to work with stone which often challenge traditional thinking. This approach, combined with an innate solution-finding mentality and an eye for finesse and aesthetics, has led to the Salvatori name becoming synonymous with innovation, design and excellence the world over.
Our head office is based in Northern Tuscany, on the coast just a few kilometres from the artists’ haven of Pietrasanta, and less than 30 minutes from the imposing quarries which are home to the famed Carrara marble.
Innovation is entrenched in the DNA of the company, and in fact we scored a world first right back in our earliest days when founder Guido Salvatori invented the Split Face (Spaccatello) finish in 1950.
Working with clients that count among them Armani, Bergdorf Goodman, Louis Vuitton and Boston Consulting Group, we pride ourselves on providing much more than mere product. We work alongside our partners right from the beginning of a project, with advice on the stone itself, design, installation and care, covering both practical and aesthetic aspects.
Today the third generation continues the story of innovation with CEO Gabriele Salvatori and his brother Guido at the helm.
The quarries. Where it all starts. Our headquarters are dominated by the Apuan Alps, home to the imposing Carrara quarries with their gleaming white gashes. For centuries man has hewn the marble from them, treasuring the stone for its qualities of permanence and endurance. With such a backdrop to our daily lives, it is little wonder that stone is embedded in our DNA, shaping all that we do.
