Natural Stones Since 1976

Everywhere in the Ossola Valleys there are traces of the preciousness of stone and of its large use. DOMO GRANITI, known for the prestige of its quarries, has been active in this mountainous region of Piedmont since 1976. For the past 40 years it has been dedicated to the extraction and cutting of ornamental natural stones. Thanks to the quality of its production and thanks to its reliability and commitment DOMO GRANITI has gained a remarkable position also in the international market.

The name DOMO GRANITI comes from the word “Domodossola”, the main town of the Ossola Valley (locally called “Domo” or “Dom” in dialect). DOMO GRANITI is equipped with high-tech machineries and carries on a complete cycle of production: starting from cutting rock walls in the quarries to the production of slabs in the plant of Trontano (VB) Italy. 

To promote its natural stones DOMO GRANITI has been participating for years to the international “Marmomacc” exhibition in Verona and to the China International Stone Fair in Xiamen.

DOMO GRANITI’s natural stones are extracted into its own quarries. The quarrying process begins by cutting rock walls with the use of the newest technologies and, depending on the characteristics of the quarry and of the material, with the use of diamond wires and special detonating materials. Residual products also include shapeless blocks that can be used for different purposes such as rivers embankments.
