Analytical and explanatory tests (of a technological and theoretical nature), technical drawings and photographs (a total of more than 1800 illustrations) make this book a work of architectural scholarship and a mine of information with suggestions and pointers that can be transferred into the professional, operational sphere.
Its principle objective is to systematically bring together in a single volume the great potential of stone, that is the whole range of families of commercial stone: marble, granite, travertine, stone in the strictest sense, emphasizing the diversity of its cultural value in terms of construction, expression, shades of colour, environmental impact, durability, etc.
The book is aimed at anyone in the world of design (architects, engineers and surveyors), those in schools of architecture and engineering (lecturers, students, post-graduates), scholars in general, art historians and the archaeological sector.
