SIXTY YEARS OF PASSION FOR NATURAL STONES
Three generations of entrepreneurs have passed down their leadership over the course of Marmi Lanza s 60 years of history, during which the firm has become a reference point in the field of natural stones in Italy and the world. The company name reveals its historical roots, referring to the founding site in via Lanza 23 in Sant Ambrogio di Valpolicella, where the firm was created at the end of the 1950s. Today, its production plant is located in Volargne: this completely renovated structure is a modern and technological workshop, designed to meet the demand for total customization of the materials. Precious natural stones from all over the world are processed here.
Marmi Lanza can boast more than half a century of history. How did the firm develop its prestige over time? We can identify three key milestones in our history: first of all, the foundation
of Marmi Lanza in 1959, thanks to a novel idea conceived by my grandfather, Bruno Destri. The second is the moment in which my father, Nereo Destri, joined the business in 1974, and proceeded to make the brand internationally renowned. Finally, I took over the reins of the company in 2016 and pursued a full re-branding operation based on the exploration of new markets and of opportunities for the valorisation of natural stones.
Can you tell us about a feat that has always distinguished the firm? We are widely recognised for our ability to seek out the finest varieties of marble, quartzite, onyx and granite in the world. I am also very proud of our capacity to adapt to new challenges, within a continuously evolving market.
What about a source of pride? Those who truly make a difference are our artisans, who process our
