We're gonna find out something extraordinary happened in the quarries. that dazzling white heart hidden in the Apuan Alps.

Marble became canvas, and the whiteness of the "shining stone" met the color: pure, strong and bright pigments that seem to scream the joy of making art.

A brilliant artist, the brazilian Eduardo Kobra, completed a gigantic portrait of David, measuring 12 x 20 meters, not "raised" with the chisel, but painted with airbrush sprays and brush strokes.

We are leaving from the meeting point at 8.30 by cars. Right now, I have 7 available seats. If you can drive a car and bring people with you, please tell me.

At 10am we will arrive to Colonnata, the town where the famous lard is born.

We will walk among the quarries and the mountains to visit the David murals and other panoramic viewpoints.

The walking is a ring of 12 km and Protected content of difference. Since the Apuan are rugged mountains, join the event only if you are experienced, you are in good shape and you have sturdy trekking equipment.

Bring your own food and water.

At 3pm we will come back to the town, where we will stop at local meat shops before going back to the meeting point.
