Our History
Ponte della Vittoria Verona

Ponte della Vittoria - Verona

On April 25, 1945, the Germans, during their retreat, blasted all the bridges of Verona including the Ponte della Vittoria, designed by Arch. Fagiuoli.
The Coltri brothers won the contract for the supply of marble (Nembro) and the bridge was inaugurated on May 24, 1955.

Marmi Santa Caterina was founded in 1967 by the brothers Guglielmo and Silvio Coltri, belonging to the third generation of entrepreneurs in stone processing industry.
Tradition and vocation have led the company to specialize in "niche" works, directing its sales not only on the Italian market but on foreign markets as well.
Marmi Santa Caterina is proud to work with some of the most renowned Italian architects such as :
arch.Carlo Scarpa
arch.Caccia Dominioni
arch.Mendini

Currently, the company is run by the two cousins Fabio and Nico, together with their sons, Marco and Nicola, who collaborate in the company.
The company covers an area of 15,000 sqm. (3,000 shed) and employs 15 people.
We use last-generation numerical control machines and have a qualified technical department for surveys and design.
In the last few years, marble and granite have been used for applications other than those commonly known: kitchen countertops, bathroom furnishings are becoming increasingly popular and a quality standard representing and keeping up the value of “made in Italy” is more and more demanded.
We firmly believe we can fully interpret this value, both for our long-established experience, and for the excellent professionalism of our workers who, together with ever-evolving processing technologies, can meet multiple needs and expectations.
