Aerial photographs by Bernard Lang showcasing the process of extracting the Carrara stone in Apuan Alps in Italy.

The exceptional quality of this creamy marble is known since roman times, when the Roman Empire already used it for the construction of their most prestigious monuments and sculpting. The noble marble from Carrara was valued by various artists and masters including Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Bernini and Rodin. The Carrara quarries have produced more marble than any other place on earth. Working in the quarries has been dangerous and continues to this day.
