Treasures from the past inspire Marazzi’s ARCHAEOLOGY, a luxurious travertine look recreated using the latest advances in digital print technology. Stone slabs used for massive building projects by ancient peoples have been earthed, often intact, at historic sites around the world. That strength and durability was the muse for this modern porcelain stoneware so in tune with today’s low-maintenance, earth friendly residences and public spaces.

The authentic, ever-changing fissures and striations of natural travertine grace the surface of a wide range of shapes and sizes. Dimensional allure accentuated by chiseled edges and surface indentations as well as nearly-infinite pattern variability give walls and floors a sense of motion and life, subtly transforming in different lights and shadows.
