What’s

RESIMARMO® ?

 

What’s ?

It is a coating consisting of 95% marble aggregates mixed with a polymer binder (5% product). It guarantees not only decorative characteristics but also high drainage.

First of all, it is a binder capable of guaranteeing the final compound characteristics, not only decorative but also high drainage. The characteristics of marble aggregates + resin make them easily adaptable to complex geometric situations. In addition, the variety of colors available allows you to make drawings or patterns of all kinds. The ease of processing and installation is conducive to geometric shapes as oblong shapes. The only limit will be your imagination.

RESIMARMO® allows you to create surfaces that meet the basic requirements. The main features are:

 

RAINING

 

The high degree of drainage capacity is one of the strengths of RESIMARMO® and depends on the particular size of the aggregates. The rapid drying of the material is provided by the space between the aggregates for easy passage of water.

 

SUSTAINABLE

Where are we - E commerce and big data are you ready

E commerce and big data are you ready.

 

Where are we

 

Your e-commerce

Where are we ? After presenting ourselves, we have to tell you where are we in Italy and then in France, we sell our products through exhibitions, fairs and other regional or national events and exclusively on the Web. You still need to know a few things about us.

For example, we are native of Milan with regard to the company’s headquarters for the activities of :

  • The Administration,
  • Accountability,
  • Commercial management,
  • Telephony,
  • RESIMARMO® retailers, (Distributors and Applicators),

And we are on the outskirts of Milan, for our activities :

  • Techniques,
  • Transport,
  • Preparation of commands,
  • Receipt of goods,
  • Storage etc …

From the beginning, we decided that e-commerce, did not need stores or showcases.
We preferred to invest in quality products at a reasonable price, rather than having stores or it was difficult to know if you, our customers, were going to move to pick up the merchandise in our warehouses. It is that we sell a large distribution product similar to the food, in its electronic distribution. With us, the price is light, but the delivery is much heavier than 100 Kg.
Our products can not be seen until everything is done and finished, the quality and beauty of RESIMARMO® can only be realized at the end of the project.
The choice was not simple and the decision difficult to make. We often talk about this famous night of August 3, 2007, where we said we would not go home until this decision was made once and for all. It must be said that having stores requires significant investments and it was no longer a question of retreating without losing more than 60% of the money of our initial investment. Our sponsors and our families, for half of what we had, had confidence and we could not risk a penny of their euro without being completely sure of us. Hence the long night of discussion or we had to decide what was the best solution for us. In the end we all came back to our respective homes late, but the decision had been made. We were going to become an e-commerce ! It was a Friday night, but when we came back, we were on Saturday. I think everyone had a good weekend, to finally know what was going to take shape on our way.

The reseller and applicator network is a service in which we have great hopes. Some of our partners have sometimes betrayed the trust we placed in them. But in spite of everything, we continue to find more and more retailers who have agreed to sign new cooperation agreements that more precisely define the role of each in the RESIMARMO® project.

 

Extensive network of distributor and applicators

Growing in Italy, France

And throughout the European community !

History of marble

 

Trevi Fountain in Rome

 

The marble has been used since ancient times as a material for sculpture and for architecture. The low refractive index of calcite, the main component, allows light to “penetrate” the surface of the stone before it is reflected, and gives this material (and especially white marbles) a special luminosity.

The term marble derives from the Greek marmaros, which means “resplendent stone”, in antiquity it indicated any “lustrable” stone, that is to say, the surface of which could be lustered by means of polishing.

Geology of marbles

the marble (in the modern sense) are initially hard, metamorphic limestones with very low porosity; they are all of lower “Devonian” or lower “Carboniferous” age and deposited in an interval of 50 million years, between 380 and 330 million years. Subsequent to their deposition, they would have undergone a complete crystallization under the influence of physico-chemical phenomena called “metamorphism”, in which the pressure, temperature and action of vapors from the deep parts of the globe intervene.


Greek marble

Ancient Greece possessed many marble quarries, with many precious varieties of ancient white marbles (Thasos, Paros, Naxos, Pentelic).

Marble was therefore widely diffused since the beginnings of Greek art.

The Greek temples originally made of wood, covered with baked clay painted in bright colors will gradually be built in marble (in the Cyclades) or in gray limestone (in the Peloponnese) thus reaching exceptional and monumental dimensions. In this new architecture, everything from stone, including framework, functional elements, reach a purely decorative value. The ringlets of the columns, which were originally the straps of wooden columns, become simple decorations.

The use in classical architecture is spreading, mainly from the monuments and temples of the Acropolis of Athens from the 5th century BC. not. È.

The Parthenon is entirely built in blocks of pentelic marble.

The Roman marble

Influenced by Greek culture, marble was regarded in ancient Rome as a particularly precious material, and as new territories were conquered, Rome began to import. The high cost of transporting quarries, which were often far away from the place of employment, initially made it a luxury material, which was used for public monuments or for the rich interior decoration of private homes.

At the time of the Roman Republic, the first temples built entirely of white marble (2nd century BC, the temple of Victorian Hercules at the Forum Boarium) used marbles imported from the Greek quarries, (Greece became a Roman province in 146 BC) with the intention of impressing the “public” with the massive use of this very costly and culturally significant material.

Also during the 2nd century BC. Began the quarrying of Luni (the hamlet of Ortonovo, now known as “Carrara marble”), which represented a good quality substitute for the white marble imported from Greece. But the reputation of marble as a luxury material did not change.

 The modern marble

It was towards the 15th and 16th centuries that the taste for marble regained vigor, thanks to the Renaissance, whether it was Italian (Rinascimento) and then French. The glorious reigns of the sovereign Medici of Tuscany completely raised the use of marble. Michelangelo had recognized and proved that the study of antiquity was the true guide to good taste in the art of sculpture. The construction of the church of St. Peter at Rome showed the fortunate advantage of the ancient marbles. Rome, Florence and Pisa became famous by their own ruins. The Medici rediscovered the marble throughout Europe.

In France, marble took on a political dimension and became a national identity. Louis XIV had the castle of Versailles built using the finest materials and the most expensive of the kingdom. “Louis XIV wanted to make Versailles the showcase of France, a political and diplomatic showcase first, an artistic and technological showcase later, a showcase of know-how” (Citation). Colbert superintendent of the king made the lost or unrecognized careers search for the Pyrenees, the Languedoc, Provence, etc… to find all nuances of marbles that made the success of the French careers.

 

But the marble of very high quality !

 

Vary in her its colorations and tones !

 

Expensive because rarer !

 

Synonymous of wealth !

 

Will remain forever…

RESIMARMO quarries - Carrara marble career

Carrara marble career.

“Our best Sales Representative is called Michelangelo. »

Alvise Lazzareschi, the mustache bleached by years and marble dust, points a finger worthy of the famous fresco of the Sistine chapel towards the crenellated horizon by the cliffs with the plateaus cut with a chalk line. It was here, in this quarries in Carrara, that the Florentine genius himself came to choose the blocks from which to carve his masterpieces such as the “Pietà” or the “David”. He could have crossed the distant ancestors of the present master of the place who settled here, at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, in the Apuan Alps, on the borders of Liguria and Emilia-Romagna.

Since the 1st century BC, the immaculate blocks that allowed the erection of the Trajane column, those of the temples of ancient Rome, St Peter’s Basilica, the embellishment of Baroque churches, the palaces of kings and emperors throughout Europe and the statues that adorn its squares and monuments have been extracted. But Alvise Lazzareschi, son and grandson of quarryman, marble entrepreneur for nearly forty years, thinks especially of the future.

Two hundred years of work

It also seems as sparkling as the cliffs nibbled by the construction machines whose arms wave in the sun to deepen the blindingly reverberating blinds, open to the middle of the wooded flanks. His company’s turnover, one of 1,100 in a sector that employs 8,000 people in Massa-Carrara province, reached 3.8 million euros in 2017 and will most likely exceed 4 million in 2018.

“We talk about marble but we should say marbles because there are as many as white wines,”

explains Alvise Lazzareschi. The yellow of Siena, the turquoise or variegated blue, but also the portor, of a deep black with its amber veins, come from rocky flanks of an area of 750 km2 whose extraction basins represent only 20 km2. They are of a quality and rarity that differ but their success is ensured by the incomparable notoriety of white Carrara, become almost a synonym of marble in everyday language.

The exploitation of white gold ensures the wealth of the province of Massa-Carrara by employing 10% of its employees and ensuring 13% of its GDP (respectively 22% and 29% for the city of Carrara alone). Unlike black gold, resources are far from being exhausted.

“We still have two hundred years of work to do,”

Alvise Lazzareschi reassures himself by fixing the mountain, lightened each year from 23,000 to 25,000 tons of marble by about twenty workers.
The use of marble has become much more democratic in recent years
The quarry is of average size among the 35 from which RESIMARMO® marble is extracted in the province of Massa-Carrara. It alone accounts for about one third of national production, just ahead of Verona, which has a similar volume of activity.

“But Carrara is a great ticket to visit the whole world. The use of marble has become much more democratic in recent years. It is no longer used to show off its wealth and no longer responds solely to social prestige. It is widely used by architects for floors, interior decorations, bathrooms or kitchens. Demand from emerging countries is constantly growing and new markets are opening up, particularly in Latin America, with Peru and Chile, or some Asian countries experiencing a real boom.”

Feed length

This is confirmed by the figures presented by the sector last September at the “Marmomacc” in Verona, the first international event for the stone market as a whole. It has not experienced the crisis and recorded, in 2017, a sixth consecutive year of growth with a growth of 3% worldwide, or about 300 million gross tons (net of quarry waste) and a turnover of 23 billion dollars.

Marble exports represent nearly 60 million tonnes, of which about 30 million tonnes are raw materials and just under 30 million tonnes are processed materials. These flows have quadrupled over the last two decades. In the first half of 2017, exports from Italy, where marble is mined in almost all regions, increased by 3.3% and production by 13.6%.

In terms of quantity, it will remain largely insufficient to catch up with Turkey, which represents nearly 42% of world exports in 2016, and more than 50% with Iran, Pakistan and India. But in terms of quality and turnover, at 1 billion euros last year, the peninsula is still one step ahead, in a sector comprising 3,300 companies and around 34,000 employees.

Italy has the largest variety of different marbles in the world and, through its primacy in design and architecture, sets the tone for its use. A guarantee of quality that explains why the marble from the Carrara quarries of the Arche de la Défense in Paris, the memorial of September 11 in New York, the Harrods stores in London and the great mosque in Abu Dhabi were used.

Technological advances

A demand satisfied in particular thanks to technological advances. For centuries, the precious blocks were torn from the quarries with spikes before a helical wire made cutting easier in the 19th century. It was replaced in the late 1970s by diamond wire.

“This has led to an unbridled exploitation of the natural resource. You could even call it predatory…

denounces Giuseppe Sansoni, author of several reports for the Legambiente environmental association.

“Production has increased 30-fold in forty years. In 1750, 5,000 tonnes were taken from quarries each year, and in 2005 it had risen to 5 million tonnes. More marble has been extracted in the last 50 years than in the previous 2,000 years!”

Aggregates were mainly extracted, since white gold blocks represent only 20% on average of what comes out of the quarries. The rest is soil and dust that ends up, at the slightest rain, in the streams that they contaminate, giving them a milky or brownish tinge.

Pollutant and hazardous

Criticisms of this industry are numerous: destruction of the landscape, pollution with the incessant ballet of nearly 1,000 trucks per day, which were still crossing downtown Carrara until 2012 to transport marble. Not forgetting the dangerousness of a trade that claimed the lives of five workers between 2014 and 2016, with an average of one dead per year during the last decade.

“Much effort has been made both to improve environmental protection and to raise safety standards,”

retorts Erich Lucchetti, the president of “Confindustria” of the province of Massa-Carrara, who considers “ideological” criticism of an activity which, by definition, changes the nature but whose economic impact on the territory is estimated at 500 million euros.

Foreign competition

Quarry production, almost 90% of which is for export, has nevertheless fallen in volume by 37% over the last fifteen years, to 3.3 million tonnes.

“It too often leaves for foreign countries where labour is cheap to work the blocks,”

deplores Giuseppe Sansoni, pointing out that Carrara is the second most indebted municipality in Italy, in particular because of the construction of the new road bypassing the city centre.

“China, India or Brazil are now processing their own production without sending it here as before. They then land on the American market, for example, with prices per square metre two to three times lower than those of Italian companies.”

Italian quarries can therefore only compete on finished products to make real profits. In 2015, the value of quarry production was around 200 million euros, while that of companies working in stone represented 800 million euros. In 2010, the Tuscany region required quarries to process at least 50% of their production on site.

“This is obviously the future…

confirms Erich Lucchetti, recalling that with 40% of the marble worked in situ, the objective is practically achieved.

“They are already investing heavily to maintain and increase the quality of our finished products, which allows us to withstand increasingly tough competition from emerging countries, but also from artificial materials, using new types of quartz or ceramics from Spain, Israel, Italy and even multinationals such as Samsung.”

Consolidation of the sector

Marble stone companies will be looking for more and more engineers, designers and architects able to anticipate and meet the needs of customers and fewer and fewer traditional quarrymen, whose number has been divided by five in forty years.

“We will see a consolidation of the sector,” predicts Erich Lucchetti. Technological developments and increasingly stringent environmental standards will eliminate quarries that are too small, ageing or exploit deposits of insufficient quality. It’s physiological.”

This consolidation is also found worldwide, despite new players that have appeared or strengthened their position on the market in recent years such as Jordan, Oman, Iran, Morocco or Vietnam.

The World Stone Report of the “Marmomacc” trade fair estimates that future quarry production will be increasingly concentrated and more than 70% assured by less than ten countries: China, India, Turkey, Brazil, Spain and Italy. The latter must remain careful not to rest on its laurels because, if its prestige belongs to history, nothing says that the wealth it can draw from it is set in stone.
