History  
 
 
G.B. Basaltite S.r.l. is the only company quarrying the lavastone Basaltite® from its quarry at Bolsena / Latium region (Central Italy). The grey Basaltite® is quarried in the heart of Central Italy, North of the Lazio region between Tuscany and Umbria.

The land and the quarry have been the property of the Battaglini family for many generations.

The area was quarried by the current owner’s grandfather until 1951. The quarry has been inactive since then, until the current owner, Nicola Guidotti Battaglini, continued the long family tradition by reactivating the quarry in 2000 to extract this remarkable stone of great architectural and artistic value.

Nowadays, G.B. Basaltite is a modern company certificated ISO 9001 – ISO 14001 – OHSAS 18001, with business relationships on the national and international market.
