Salvatori make innovative stone tiles from the oldest building material, marble.
Most of the research that is done is about surface texture. They develop the machinery and innovation methods to work the marble themselves. The technique is completely original.
The company was founded in the late 1940s in an area of Tuscany – between Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi – which is famous both for the quarries and for the traditional techniques of working the stone.
Salvatori’s method is unique. In the 1950s, the company scored a world first when it invented the so-called “Spaccatello” or “Split-face” technique. (The company has always been at the cutting edge in the industry and is the forerunner of many innovations, both in materials and finishes. Gabriele Salvatori, the art director, represents the third generation of this important company.)
