Some years ago a German couple came to visit our show room. They asked me to make a blooming rose fountain for their garden. It was destined to become a mutual gift on the occasion of their wedding anniversary. I must say that it was a very rewarding experience as I had the liberty of developing the project and choosing materials. I decided to sculpture the roses of the fountain in high relief, inserting them in a classical casing as a recurring element. I chose marble from Trani, which is known for its soft colour and for being weatherproof, and should say that it proved to be the most appropriate choice for this elegant fountain.
