Biancone Musicco, the “poster child” of our stone mining company, is characterized by its tipical white colour.
Every work in Biancone is a little masterpiece, thanks to our master stonecutter wise work.
Trani Biancone’s history goes far back.The term “biancone” was used to point out a layer of limestone with an extraordinary white colour different from other darker layers.
This hard limestone extends underground all over the north-western area nearby Bari up to the Gargano promontory and the Murge plateau. The extreme porosity of this material, which caused the nickname “Puglia sitibonda” (thirsty Apulia), directs almost the whole water circulation to the deepest groundwater levels, so that this lack of water circulation in the superficial layer of the subsurface favors the possibility of clay outcrop.
