The pomegranate, from the Latin malum granatum, is the fruit of the pomegranate tree. Native to the area between Iran and the Himalayan chain, today this tree is found throughout the temperate belt of the planet.
The pomegranate is a robust berry with a hard, leathery skin and varying size depending on the variety and growing conditions. the fruit has strong internal partitions that act as placentation to the seeds, called kernels or arils, which are separated by a menmbrane called a cica.
The pomegranate is not only cultivated for food, but also for ornamental purposes. Its fruit is a symbol of abundance and fertility and provides numerous benefits and nutrients.


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.
