14 Oct. 2006 The 41st Marmomacc "International Exhibition of Marble and Stone Technology"

This is possibly the largest show of marble and stone machines in Itlay. It is attended by vendors and buyers from every corner of the world. While we walked around we saw many machines with "Sold" (venduto) signs meaning someone had just spent a small fortune. Viewing these enormous machines made me think back to our tour of Pietrasanta with Doug and Esther and wathcing them make their stone art by hand, quite a difference. I prefer art made by hand.
See Esther's art at:
Working the Cutting Machine

Sink Router

Etching Picaso's Guernica

This is how money is made at Marmomacc
