Presentation

The Rubbio quarries take their name from the small mountain hamlet (1,057 m) divided between the Vicenza municipalities of Bassano del Grappa and Lusiana Conco. In this locality, subject to mining activities in the past, the rocky amphitheaters originated by the excavation of limestone since the 1980s have been cleaned up and transformed into works of art by Bassano resident Toni Zarpellon. The first and best known of the four quarries encountered along the grassy path is the "painted quarry." The different shapes of the emerging rocks have been painted by the artist, taking on the likeness of many faces or stylized, colorful animals. With the colors and still gazes on the visitor, the artist reflects on the relationship between man and nature with an inscription on the rock: "The relationship with silence and the open space of nature helps to discover one's own identity."
