About Budri

“There can sometimes be surprising mismatches between how people look and behave and the jobs they do. When I met Alessandra and Marco Budri I was struck by her elegant lightness of touch and his extreme passion for marble.

I understood their ability to infuse these materials with their characters and their approach to life, achieving a transformation in marble and stone that lightens their nature, leaving them diaphanous, colourful, vibrant and elegant.

Like master couturiers they are able to choose and cut, use colours and vein patterns, and create vibrations and transparencies, dressing living spaces with outstanding works of art."
