March is marble month at Vesta, and we’re intent on celebrating it with a tribute to this timeless and classic stone. We’ll start with this compelling and beautiful short film, “il Capo”, by Yuri Anacarani, that was featured on Nowness.
“Marble quarries are places so unbelievable and striking, they almost feel like they are big theaters or sets,” says Yuri Ancarani, the filmmaker behind today’s excerpt from the documentary, Il Capo (The Chief), which follows a quarry boss as he guides his men through the extraction process, using a silent language of gesture and sign.
Ancarani was captivated by the otherworldly landscapes of the quarry. He spent nearly a year filming on Monte Bettolgi, in the Carrara region of the Apuan Alps, in Northwest Italy, eventually deciding to focus his film on the hypnotic, and rather dramatic moment when the monumental marble blocks are freed from the mountainside, and fall to the ground with an earth-shattering thud.
If you’re looking at achieving the unparalleled and elegant look of pure marble, visit us in the showroom and peruse the wide selection of pure marble slabs we have on site.
