The historic city of Pietrasanta (Lucca) is a mecca for both artists and art aficionados. Over the years many artists have found their way to Pietrasanta and have stayed there for short or long periods. Artists can work there in one of several marble studios. The whole town breathes art and it is to be found (mostly as modern art) on every square and in almost every street.
Pietrasanta is located at the foot of the Apuan Alps, three kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea. From the center and points outside the city medieval hiking trails wind through the mountains.
Studio Marco Maretti is located in the center of Pietrasanta. The studio is equipped with all facilities required for working in marble, such as trestles, electricity and a compressor.
