Recent trip to Milan, Bergamo, Verona, and Carrara Italy to source one of kind slabs for our clients new home. An amazing 5 star experience to be part of extraordinary trip hosted by Aria Stone Gallery. Our clients had a chance to take part in this behind-the-scenes process of hand selecting stone for their new home. The trip allowed them to experience in the rich history, culture and cuisine of the region from which the stone is sourced. This hands-on approach is unique to Aria and gave my clients the ability to experience all stages of stone sourcing, from mining and processing, to the selection of that perfect piece that will have great memories attached to the installed selections.  Video link:
