Michelangelo

Product overview

Michelangelo

Michelangelo is an interpretation of the most beautiful Statuario Michelangelo extracted from the marble basins of Carrara. Statuario Michelangelo marble is characterized by a particularly white background, which is very bright, and by thin gold and grey veins, with a spectacular effect.

Nexion selected this finest marble with its seductive tones and extremely suggestive graphics adapting it with the contemporary trends adding a purple accent in its soft veins.
Michelangelo is part of Leptis collection and recalls the exotic taste of unique marbles during the splendor of Leptis, the most important African city of the Roman Empire, renowned for its lavish architectural treasures.
