Quality guarantee - Our trademarks

In order to guarantee its image and the authenticity of the exclusive product, Cooperativa Apuana has registered its own trademark, as well as the one of the subsidiary Company Apuana Lavorati. It is an essential step to ensure the origin of the material extracted from the quarry called Piastra Bagnata located in the municipality of Vagli Sotto (LU).

In 2014, Cooperativa Apuana also registered the brands Calacatta Vagli® and Arabescato Vagli®, two of the finest quality of marble present in the Apuo-Versilian area, extracted only from the quarry Piastra Bagnata. In this way it is easier to guarantee the uniqueness of marble’s origin; designers have a tool to avoid counterfeits for the realization of the most important world masterpieces.

Recently, another unique and valuable material has been registered: Calacatta Fiorito®, it is extracted from the quarry called Borella located in the municipality of Vagli Sotto (LU) and owned by the subsidiary Company Faeto Escavazione srl.
