    Pass By: Colonnata, Carrara Italy

    Look inside the vast white wounds that open up on the wild slopes of Carrara, and learn how the quarries have provided marble to towns and cities across Italy for more than 2,000 years.

    Hear about the sweat of the men who mined the marble used to build the Pantheon and Trajan's Column in Ancient Rome, along with many sculptures of the Renaissance. The world of marble is not just about excavation; it tells the history of the landscape and its inhabitants. Get in touch with the people, places, and machinery of an ancient tradition.

    Drive to different, active quarries of up to 1,000 meters above sea level, and hear how the noble stone is mined. Follow the winding roads of the Colonnata Valley and get detailed explanations about the old and modern excavation process. Take panoramic pictures of a terraced quarry in the Miseglia Valley before visiting an amazing underground quarry. Stop to taste some Lardo di Colonnata IGP on the way back to the starting point.
