Exploiting, distributing and using decorative rocks (marmora) in the early Middle Ages
The use of stone materials for ornamental purposes is a decisive phenomenon in the material and artistic culture of the European and Mediterranean world since ancient times. For this reason, knowledge of the production and distribution processes of decorative rocks, identified as marble in the sources, their forms of use, or their aesthetic-symbolic keys, becomes a significantly useful tool to understand the societies of the past. . Under this basic premise of using non-construction stone material as a historical tool, the research work presented is proposed.
