A new developmental way
Today we represent the undisputed point of reference regarding Italian porphyry and can cope with any order. We are determined to strongly safeguard our enviable tradition to process and lay the stone. Our experience belongs to each of our founders, but also and above all to all our workers. This is what makes us unique all over the world. When founding Italporphyry – CIPT (Consorzio Italiano Porfido del Trentino – Italian Porphyry Consortium of Trentino), all the major companies of the sector have joined together with one mission: to put aside any individualistic logic that is very common in the mountain regions and join together in a single production business that strongly favours quality, from extraction to installation. We address all those who appreciate the elegance, durability and shades of our material, besides our craftsmanship that, same as each artwork, makes it unique and tailor-made each laying and construction.
