Grolla marble is our flagship product: Marmi Faedo is in fact the exclusive owner of the one and only Grolla marble quarry in the world, which is located a short distance from our company, in the Cornedo-Valdagno valley.
The passion of the Faedo family for marble goes way back: it was Angelo Faedo who moved the first steps in the marble industry, more than seventy years ago. He then passed the baton on to his son Alessandro, who bought the whole quarry located in Spagnago in the second half of the Eighties, thereby making Marmi Faedo the only company in the world to extract Grolla marble. Marmi Faedo has since become the reference point for the domestic market as well as for foreign markets. The company has acquired an important role in the global market and has created works both outside the Veneto Region and abroad: from Algiers to Washington, to France and Russia.
The uniqueness of the Grolla marble lies in its exceptional mechanical-technical properties, all of which have been strictly certified. Low water absorption, resistance to abrasion, to swimming pool salts and crystallization make this marble also suitable for outdoor applications. But that’s not all: Grolla marble is an extremely versatile product that lends itself to any type of processing.

The evolution of the territory
Changing and enriching the environment
Over the years, from the Second World War onwards, the mountain in Spagnago lost most of its inhabitants, who migrated to the valley. Between the Sixties and the Seventies, the quarries were the main protagonists in the area: Mora, Rosa, Cengi and many more were bought, one after the other, by Alessandro Faedo in the Eighties.
The only existing quarry in the mountain now is the one located between the municipalities of Cornedo and Valdagno; the others have all been closed down. Marmi Faedo has taken all the necessary measures to maintain the concession and has presented a project that complies with all the relevant regulations while safeguarding the territory; this project has been unconditionally approved by the Building Authority of the municipalities of Valdagno and Cornedo.
The excavation project will continue in the years to come, in compliance with all the current laws, to safeguard the environment and, last but not least, respect the demands made by the surrounding hamlets.
An environmentally-sustainable quarry
A reforestation program that neutralizes the environmental impact
Marmi Faedo recognises the value of nature and of the mountains: the company dedicates a lot of care to the quarry, eliminating exploitation and neutralizing the environmental impact.
Marmi Faedo has presented a reclamation project that contemplates the full reforestation of the mountain as the extraction activity goes on, by sowing grass and planting trees.
This project has successfully passed the procedure foreseen by the pertinent regulations, receiving the approval of the Council, Provincial and Regional Authorities, as well as that of the Green Party.
