Monte Altissimo is the place where it all began: the beating heart of the company. It was Michelangelo Buonarroti, in 1517, to discover the marbles of Seravezza. In 1820 Jean Baptiste Alexandre Henraux transformed Michelangelo’s intuition into a company destined to great success. Over the years, prestigious orders were assigned to Henraux: the Cathedral of St. Isaac in St. Petersburg (1845), the reconstruction of Montecassino (1945-1962), the floor of the basilica of San Pietro in the Vatican (1962), just to name a few. In 1957 Erminio Cidonio arrived in Versilia to become the General Manager and leader of Henraux. He made Henraux a world-leading company in the stone sector, dedicating his whole life and his energies to it. He developed and maintained relationships with several great masters, such as Henry Moore, Hans Jean Arp, Joan Miró, Georges Vantongerloo, Isamu Noguchi and many others. Henraux marbles are used today, as in the past, for works by important architects all over the world and for the sculptures of the best known contemporary masters. Luci di Carrara is the company division specialized in products and furnishings in the world of design.
