For generations the Vanelli family has owned marble quarries in the Carrara area of Paonazzo, Bardiglio and Statuario. Fiammetta Vanelli is the female heir of this extraordinary heritage, the feminine declination of a long family tradition.The history of the Vanelli family’s marble began in 1818, when Duchess Maria Beatrice d’Este granted the Vanelli family the right to excavate the white marble of Carrara. In 1960 Fiammetta’s grandfather acquired the quarry owned by the family, called Zona67 - Zona Mossa, in the Bettogli mount and since 2011 the Vanelli family also owns the quarry nr. 66 Poggio Silvestre. The company is characterized not only by the supply of slabs and blocks of these precious materials but it is also specialized in marble processing and in the creation of design objects and home furniture.
