General description

Travertine Navona was chosen by the Italian sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini for his masterpieces, the magical, almost living Fontana del Moro in Rome. The fame of this kind of travertine is international and by naming it after this great artist, we wanted to pay homage to his talent and mastery of stone carving. The fountain is located in the epicenter of Rome, in Piazza Navona. Here four Tritons and the Moor, wrestling with a dolphin, gather every year thousands of admirers.

When beams of light hit a façade, a wall or a floor cladded in this natural stone, it offers a unique, unmistakable look. Its elegant touch is second only to the charm of its color: as the vein cut accentuates the marks of the natural veining, the surface is neatly colored in cream and beige shades, with little color variations. The streaks of light hazelnut to cream tones liven up the room, enthralling the gaze.

Among all natural stones, Roman Travertine is the perfect choice for interior and exterior applications. Its durability and resistance to extreme weather conditions ensure remarkable façades that stand out against the surrounding, while the needs for little maintenance next to its natural glow make it a perfect choice for interior applications.

Navona travertine is ideal in distinguished and sophisticated settings. The installation of Roman Travertine is advised for both residential and commercial uses. Families and guests will be welcomed by an harmonious, bright and refined space, where they will instantly feel at home, in an intimate, friendly environment.

Roman Travertine is an Italian excellence, extracted from the historical Barco quarries, now part of Poggi Bros quarry. It is manufactured with Italian top-quality machinery and the virtuosity of our stonemasons. All complemented with passion for nature and its exclusive gifts handed down from one generation to the other.
