Marble is historicity – What Simona Uberto thinks of natural stone

Simona Uberto, artist and full professor of painting at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, takes us on a journey through the centuries to tell us how marble is a living, breathing and transforming material.
From Michelangelo to Marc Quin, marble has given artists the versatility, the infinite nuances, the unique materiality to complete their works.
Even today at the Brera Academy, students learn to use hammer and chisel to become familiar with this exceptional material: art and high craftsmanship at the same time, present in human history for centuries and centuries.
