has been famous since the time of Ancient Rome; the Pantheon and Trajan's Column in Rome are constructed of it. Many famous sculptures of the Renaissance, such as Michelangelo's David, were carved from Carrara marble
. For Michelangelo at least, Carrara marble
was valued above all else, except perhaps that of his own quarry
in Pietrasanta. Marble Arch
in London and the Duomo di Siena are also made from this well regarded stone.
