1. 1938

    In 1938, at the age of 24, Giovanni Mario Moro left his home town of Montemerlo in the province of Padua where he had been working as a stonecutter. He eventually ended up at the Pelganta quarry in Crodo and before long was engaged to Gina, the owner’s daughter.

    The family business began in 1953 using erratic boulders.

    Giovanni Mario Moro and his sons, Rino and Romeo, bought the quarry of Serizzo Antigorio in Crodo.

    When the workshop for stone processing was set up in 1979, Moro Serizzo carried out every step of the operation – from quarrying to cutting and finishing. Over the years, Moro Serizzo has created objects and devised architectural solutions, with an eye to tradition, history, and the local environment, that use stone from the family quarry – Serizzo Antigorio.

    The company expanded its production cycle to include the transformation and processing of Italian and international stone, alongside the long-established use of stone from the Ossola Valley.
