Franchi Umberto Marmi is a dynamic, leading company in the stone industry with a strong commitment, history and vision. We, at franchiumbertomarmi, value cooperation and creativity, and have grown into an award winning firm (Best Communicator Award 2011), responsive to the needs of an international market and capable of providing from extraction to supply and fabrication of our quarry owned material. Our marble has decorated "Tower One" of the One World Trade Center, New York and has contributed to the building of the new wing of Jeddah's Mecca. It all started yesterday...Some forty years ago, when the sound of a 128 FIAT car was echoing amid the silent mountains, humming in tune with a man's heartbeat. A moment of fabulous intensity for a visionary man that knew how to read the stars and to conceive a dream that would some day become reality. In that dreamlike world populated by myths, but also made of hard work and sweat, ideas were turned into concrete actions, dreams into projects and goals to be reached. Today, the unreal silence of the quarries brings back the story of a company that for forty years has proven its distinction and competence for the realization of any project.
Our company is engaged in exporting Carrara's culture and its marble around the world and to its most prestigious locations. A promoter of the precious gift left by Nature, franchiumbertomarmi has exalted the concrete, valuable aspects of marble – its elegance and distinction – through the realization of many ambitious, worldwide architectural works. Our extremely modern showroom, located in Avenza di Carrara, is the best observation point to see how the raw material is fabricated into a finished product. Our work-team of people, completely reliable and capable of conjugating innovation with flexibility, shares the same joys and sorrows and sacred values of quarrymen who day by day endure dangers and fatigue shaping the future with their hard work.
Franchi Umberto Marmi is composed of professionals guided by passion and competence, constantly dedicated to finding the best solution to their clients' needs. A company capable of making everybody – whether a client or an employee – feel at home. A team of people who put soul into business, who combine today's innovation and development with the wisdom and spirit of the company's founder, firmly convinced that diversity of opinions is a source of advantage. The firm is strongly committed to promoting Carrara and the beauty of its marble quarries, places of astonishing magnificence that make man feel small and yet allow one to rediscover the grandeur of nature and human creativity. The collaboration with designers Paolo Armenise and Silvia Nerbi has meant a fantastic voyage into design – an investigation into the world of landscape architecture, which has culminated in a concept of marble envisaged in all its originality. Each block is directly carved at the quarry site, following its original features, thus creating unique objects capable of recalling all emotions originated by its source.
