Paola Blasi

Associate, Architectural Stone Specialist, Advanced Digital Engineering

I am a chartered geologist with almost 30 years' experience in the natural stone industry. My passion for stone started when working in Carrara, a very well-known International Stone hub.

Much of my role entails visiting quarries, processing plants and training architects on the use of stone. This has resulted in building a strong network of quarries and manufacturers of finished products, fixing systems and chemical products for stone surface care.

My knowledge and experience allow me to bring together both traditional and innovative deep expertise in all phases of our stone projects, from sourcing to post-installation. I have a keen interest in the sustainable use of stone which involves sourcing and tailoring materials for specific applications, while supporting best practices in quarrying, processing and installation.

I am the Chair of the European Standardization Technical Committee for Natural Stone since 2009 and a member of the Technical Committee of the GB Stone Federation.
