The Apuan Alps harbor one of the world’s largest marble deposits: this is where, since the ancient Roman times, marble has been extracted – once using the most simple means and today with modern technology. The extraction of marble in the Carrara quarries is a metaphor for the excessive global intrusion of Man into nature: automation, resource shortage, concentration of wealth, as well as the conflict between environment and production. These scars will remain long after people will have left this manmade Tuscan landscape: the Carrara quarries are running out of marble.
