This passion pushed the two to visit the Trentino caves, travelling in person with their lorries, loading goods, selecting the most qualified ones , with the better cuts and colors, and bringing them for the first time in the province of Bergamo, introducing the first pavings in natural stone. Thanks to the intensification of the production of the caves, the possibilities of laying and the wide choice, several possibilities were available and, among them, stand out cubes, kerbstones and tiles. Loading areas of natural stones were amplified, in particular they loaded Luserna and Italian Quarzite in Piemonte caves, Beole and Serizzi in Domodossola caves, marble wall blocks in Verona caves and, in the end, pebbles in Ticino caves.
