Company

In 1925 Giuseppe Tecchi, the founder of Basaltina®, gathered together stonemasons from Bagnoregio to form a select team. The quarry had been mined since ancient times, when small quantities of stone were excavated to create everyday objects. Basaltina® had become famous for its durability and versatility. The founder's son, Raffaele Tecchi, has consolidated the company's success and assimilated all the latest technological developments. Basaltina's state-of-the-art equipment allows it to extract and process thousands of cubic meters of stone every year.

The company started off as a local firm and has grown into a major industrial manufacturer, admiredall over the world. Its staff works with the same passion as ever but now its market is international.

Basaltina has collaborated with some of today's most prestigious internationalarchitects and designers. Basaltina® stone is an essential ingredient in high-profile projects such as the Aurora Place in Sydney, designed by Renzo Piano; the New Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, by Gae Aulenti; the New Winspear Opera House in Dallas, by Norman Foster; the Hamad International Airport in Doha, by Ali Moghaddasi; the three Samsung skyscrapers in the famous Gangnam neighbourhood of Seoul; the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, by Gaudí, and, last but not least, all the Dolce & Gabbana boutiques throughout the world, designed by David Chipperfield.
