Roman Travertine is one of the most long-standing and famous marbles, used since the times of the Roman Empire.
Such masterpieces as the Colosseum, the Theatre of Marcellus and St. Peter's Basilica are a testimony. Used since more than 2500 years ago, it is the only stone in the world that is still used today.
The extractions take place in Tivoli (Province of Rome, Italy), where Fratelli Poggi own quarries. What makes Roman travertine unique are its characteristics, such as resistance, color, timeliness and the ability to adapt to various architectural styles, for both interior and exterior design
Unmistakable are the characteristics of Roman Travertine, the neutral color and its shades that recall the colors of the earth making this unique material in the world, "Rome" the Eternal City confirms its resistance.
Roman Travertine is extracted from Poggi quarries since 1923, thanks to the work of brothers Antonio and Vincenzo Poggi. Today, from those same quarries, we continue to maintain production, extraction, processing and trading of travertine.
Today the company is led by the third generation of the same family and for over 90 years it has been and still is one of the world leaders in trading Roman Travertine. The Poggi company follows the whole process from extraction to processing of products. The company quarries over 20.000 m³ of travertine per year, operating gang-saws and blockcutters, that enables a production up to 20.000 m² of finished goods per month. The highly specialized team of workers allows us to satisfy the design requirements of the greatest architects, engineers and designers of the world market.
Thanks to the laboratories for the processing of travertine stones and to the high-quality machinery, we produce different types of travertine and marble products such as: blocks, slabs, tiles, flooring and cladding, coverings, furniture, objects of all kinds, interior/exterior design, both for the national and international market.
