Mariotti Travertine Factory and Quarry, Tivoli, Italy
Located in Tivoli, Italy, where handcrafted travertine has been produced since ancient times, Mariotti Carlo & Figli S.p.A. have been producing travertine since 1895. Some of the most famous buildings in the world have been clad with stones produced by Mariotti. Buildings such as the Getty Center, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the World Trade Center, and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts all contain travertine that was carved and finished by the hands of their artisans.
Working in concert with Daniels Real Estate, Mariotti's travertine stones, destined for The Mark in Seattle, awaited the team for inspection. Each stone was assembled like a colossal puzzle on the ground exactly as it will be installed in Seattle. The team also toured the Mariotti factory and quarry and witnessed the process of creation first-hand.
