The mango is a drupe-type fruit that comes from several species of tropical trees belonging to the Mangifera genus, cultivated mainly for their fruit. Most of these species are found in the wild. The genus belongs to the cashew family Anacardiaceae.
The mango is a fleshy, juicy and tender fruit. Its greenish skin is mottled with red and yellow. The yellow-orange flesh is attached to a large, flattened stone.
The mango is a typical fruit of India, Pakistan and the Philippines, while in Bangladesh it is even considered the 'national tree'; in several cultures, mango fruits and leaves are used for decorative purposes at festivals, weddings and other religious ceremonies.


At the foot of the Apuan Alps, Carrara is unique in the world for its marble quarries. The “white gold of the Apuan Alps”: this is how the marble of Carrara is defined, a precious stone with which important works have been realised and that has made this town, for centuries devoted to its extraction and processing, great.
One of the first people to venture into marble quarrying were the Romans who, by inserting beams of fig wood inside natural fissures in the rock, filled these with water until they were completely impregnated and caused the rock to split. This extraction technique remained unchanged, if not with minor variations, until the Renaissance when Michelangelo began to frequent the Carrara area to directly choose the raw material for his works: it was from Carrara, transported along the Arno, that the block from which the Maestro sculpted the famous David came.
Marble thus became an important raw material for the construction, furnishing and decoration of public buildings and patrician residences.
Even today, skilful artists and craftsmen still work this material with mastery, creating stupendous works of art and decorative objects that become true furnishing accessories.
