After a drive from Verona to Zimella, Cate was taken on a tour of Stone Italiana’s manufacturing plants following the process from design and manufacturing to final slab. It was here that Cate got to see the laboratory where bespoke surfaces are made for companies and brands all over the world, and where all the new surfaces are devised before being manufactured.

Paola Della Valle kindly spent time with Cate discussing the latest Stone Italiana Sustainability Report and answering questions about the company’s motivations behind the invention of Cosmolite – their 100% recycled, low-silica slab material.

In the large logistics building, where all the slabs cool and dry on racks before being dispatched, Stone Italiana proudly showed Cate their new Cosmolite collection. Called Supernova, the collection includes the palest creams, super whites and cloudy whites, with or without veins. That evening, the founder of Stone Italiana – Mr Della Valle – welcomed a large number of Stone Italiana customers from all over the world at a sophisticated white themed drinks reception and dinner in the same hall.
