The Most DANGEROUS Italian Road: Where Eagles Dare | Carrara Marbles

The marble quarries extend all over the mountainous area overhanging the lovely town of Carrara and in a great part of the near territory of Versilia (Province of Lucca). It is commonly believed, though not historically documented, that the excavation in the area dates back to the Copper Age, when the Apuan district was populated by its native inhabitants, the Ligurian Apuans.
