THE LAVA STONE FROM ETNA
For the Sicilians, Etna is “a Muntagna”, the mountain par excellence.
Etna is great and dangerous. It represents a naturalistic heritage and a fundamental economic resource for the entire Sicilian territory.
The inhabitants of the cities that arose on its slopes, despite the risks, decided to live with this extraordinary force of nature.
The lava rock extracted from the volcano is the most symbolic expression of how the destructive force of nature, a force that changes and shapes the territory, can be transformed into a source of wealth and beauty.
From the hands of experienced stonemasons, the lava stone is transformed into a work of art.
