What is Carrara marble? Its a type of high-quality white or blue-grey marble, found in the foothills of the Apuan Alps and quarried in the city of Carrara in the Massa and Carrara provinces. To this day, many consider these mountains the capital of marble. Every year, the mines retrieve tens of millions of tons of marble and other unique hard stones.
