In conjunction with the passage of the Giro d'Italia in Biella, Ramella Graniti presented Montagne 3D, a work created with a block of Balma Syenite, shaped with a 5-axis CNC machine.
Starting from the Po Valley, Montagne 3D reaches the Alps where Monte Rosa and Cervino guard the Biellese Prealps which this year once again welcomed the caravan of the 100th Giro d'Italia with the Castellania - Oropa stage, which became Montagna Pantani in memory of the great feat of the unforgettable Pirate.
The project was born from a geographical map of the Biella area converted into a three-dimensional digital drawing. The diamond tip of the 5-axis, water-cooled CNC machine shapes the stone following the three-dimensional design and, after 180 hours of processing, Montagne 3D is ready.
We thank Funivie Oropa for their hospitality, all the people who visited the exhibition during the Giro and all those who will do so soon: Montagne 3D will remain on display outside the Funivie Oropa with the stylized bike by Luisella Serafini at its side, in brushed stainless steel, made with water cutting.
