What’s in the photo above: the leaf of a plant in a top view, the carapace of an insect in a side view? We don’t know, but we know: it’s “a Galiotto.“

The industrial designer and stone sector mastermind Raffaello Galiotto, will once again present an exhibition at the upcoming Marmomac (September 27 – 30, 2022) in Verona, where he will explore the limits of what is possible with natural stone. “Visionary Stone“ is the title of the show with works of 9 artists and designers and also by Galiotto himself, who will act as curator.

What will be shown is based on forms from the plant and animal kingdoms, according to a press release.

As you can see: we don’t know anything for sure but are curious.

The hallmark of the presentation on 3 islands in Hall 10 of Marmomac is that the works were created digitally and executed by CNC machines.

Galiotto had already gone through this concept in the Italian Stone Theater in Hall 1 in 2015 with “Digital Lithic Design,“ in 2016 with “The Power of Stone“ and later with the series “Percorsi d’Arte“ (Ways of Art).


Also in Hall 10, architecture professor Giuseppe Fallacara (Polytechnic of Bari), another stone mastermind from Italy, is the curator of the “Marmomac Meets Academies” exhibition, together with professor Domenico Potenza from the Department of Architecture of the “G. d’Annunzio” University of Chieti-Pescara. This year’s theme is “ITALY TO DISCOVER” University research and landscape of the urban public space. Presented will be an exemplary itinerary (between the stone territories and urban landscapes) about the public space of some Italian province realities together with the major Italian and foreign universities experiments.

Participants are: University of Catania, University of Basilicata, University “G. D’Annunzio” of Chieti-Pescara, University of Rome La Sapienza, Polytechnic of Bari, University of Camerino, Academy of Fine Arts of Verona, University Technische Kaisersautern, New York Institute of Technology, Polis University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
