Completed in 2021, the hall C1 is the latest addition to the Avenza headquarters and was designed by Giuseppe Venuta.
It was designed as a big box (it covers an area of 3750 sqm) and its entrance is perfectly aligned with the central axis of the headquarters, ideally linked with the office building. This new building also takes over and updates the concept of the headquarters’ industrial architecture since it consists of a structure naturally integrated in the landscape both in terms of aesthetics and environmental impact.
The extent of this new exhibition area and its design allow the optimisation of the logistic strategic functions and the connection with the industry 4.0 information systems. Even in the creation of the Hall C1 as exhibition space, every detail and design choice were imposed by the precise desire to enhance the marble and its unique features: this is what makes Franchi Umberto Marmi stand out, making it a top player in the sector
Il marmo di Carrara un ponte culturale che scavalca confini e travalica gli oceani. Dai tempi più antichi del mondo romano all’era della globalizzazione la materia marmo è sinonimo di eccellenza, bellezza e unicità.

What is the essence of Carrara marble? A millennia-long history, the genius of the artists, the excellence of the great architecture, the skill of the best craftsmen and the authenticity of being natural and sustainable.
The sustainable use of the raw material marble is a central goal for Franchi Umberto Marmi that is also concretely measurable in the perspective of a transparent business model in every stage of the process.
Even though today it seems incredible, there was a time when the marble of Carrara was carried down from the mountain on a steep iron path used by locomotives and carriages of the Private Marble Railway of Carrara.
