From the Carrara marble quarries to the sea
The marble quarries of Carrara and the Apuan Alps in general are included in the selection of stock photos. In these marble quarries, the ancient Romans extracted the marble to decorate villas and palaces while Michelangelo came to choose the marble blocks to make the sculptures. The Apuan Alps also offer splendid mountain views overlooking the sea.
In the town of Larderello, in the province of Pisa, intense jets of steam come out of the ground, called dandelions. Dante too was inspired by this landscape to describe his hell in the Divine Comedy. Today the boraciferous shower heads are used for the production of electricity. The collection of stock images includes photographs of the Larderello geothermal power plants, managed by ENEL and images of the steam jets inside the Biancane park.
