Marmo Rosso (Rosso Asiago or Rosso Verona) is a peculiar, high-quality Italian marble, with shades going from light red to dark red, from bright red to opaque brown-red; this depends on several factors: the extraction area of the block and the high or low portion of the quarry walls.
Usually, the block is cross cut (parallel to the stratification layers), or less by using the vein cut (vertical to the stratification layers) where the straight line of the veins is mostly shown.
It is a very solid and compact material, used in outdoor areas, thanks to its ice resistance. Just like the Alps Beige, the Red marble is used in several anti-slip manufacturing works (street furniture, square or pavement flooring, outdoor house furniture and floors, external staircases, skirting boards, stone wall covering) or indoor furniture (basement rooms, cellars, spaces with aged, polished or honed finishes).
The outdoor furniture workmanship may include: the bush-hammered, aged, rolled and the antiqued one (a common one, particularly in rustic spaces, indoor too).
