Carrara Arte - Paperweight "LIZZA" white Carrara marble
Original, cute and useful Paperweight "Lizza", inspired by the historic downstream transport of marble blocks.
Original white Carrara marble paperweight.
The term "lizzatura" refers to the method by which the Egyptian era until the sixties of the twentieth century, in Carrara were transported from the quarry to the valley the marble blocks boxes.
The term “Lizzatura” is derived directly from the slide on which the blocks, linked in a particular way, the blocs was made to slip on wooden beams along the streets from loading in the quarry brought up at the unloading downstream.
These streets they called “via di Lizza”.
