LAVAGNOLI MARMI 150 years of family tradition

In the quarries nestled amid the Verona mountains, known as the renowned Urbs Marmorea, the ancestors of the Lavagnoli family dedicated themselves to the crafts of quarrying, stone carving, and skilled craftsmanship in modest workshops. It was in this rich heritage that Luigi Annichini, a forebear of the Lavagnoli lineage, honed his craft, meticulously handcrafting architectural elements like columns, balustrades, altars, and tombs since 1875. This venerable tradition transcended generations, reaching Alessandro Lavagnoli, Luigi’s grandson.

Alessandro’s journey began amidst the masterful workshops of artisan carvers and marble workers. His apprenticeship unfolded in the intricate art of carving and sculpting, leaving an indelible mark evident in the War Bulletin plaques gracing the Ponte della Vittoria bridge in Verona and countless sacred bas-reliefs and statues. In 1957, fueled by determination and supported by his wife Armanda Tosolini, Alessandro, a scion of the Lavagnoli family, embarked on his entrepreneurial venture.

Driven by pragmatism, Alessandro Lavagnoli opened his own business, navigating the challenges with resilience befitting his family legacy. Ever hungry for new experiences, skills, and innovations, Alessandro moved to the Friuli Venezia Giulia region in the early 1980s, perpetuating the legacy of craftsmanship forged in the quarries of Urbs Marmora.

Leonardo Alessandro Lavagnoli, son of Armanda Tosolini and a scion of the Lavagnoli family, embarked on his journey as a craftsman and entrepreneur, immersing himself in the classical techniques of handcrafting stones from an early age. Even in his childhood, he absorbed the intricacies of this art form. As he grew, Leonardo expanded his knowledge, delving into the study of various stones and their applications, embracing new technologies that emerged.

His career was marked by unwavering determination, a penchant for challenges, and a keen sensitivity to the influences of architecture and art. In the late 1990s, Leonardo took a pioneering step by introducing the first computer-controlled equipment and venturing into foreign markets. Seizing control of the company in 1997, he orchestrated a transformative journey, officially renaming it Lavagnoli Marmi S.r.l in 2001 and fostering the development of the Lavagnoli brand.

Since then, the company has undergone significant evolution, now offering highly sophisticated processes enabled by state-of-the-art equipment and a team of highly qualified and trained professionals. Leonardo’s vision has propelled Lavagnoli into a realm of cutting-edge capabilities and innovation within the industry.
