FONTEVIVA, AS AUTHENTIC AS ITS LAND
Featuring a rugged morphology, with deep valleys and steep slopes, the Apuan Alps are
one of the most beautiful and unique mountain areas in Italy, a place where nature and culture have
been in perfect harmony for centuries. Strabo called these peaks the “lunae montes”, meaning lunar mountains.
The Apuan Alps contain one of the largest marble deposits in the world, which, at first glance, creates the
illusion of snow due to its brilliant white colour and attracts sculptors and artists from around the globe.
The mountains also have Karst caves, the realm of expert speleologists, and high peaks with altitudes
close to 2,000 metres. It is a pristine environment with strong contrasts, in which nature still holds sway.
Perhaps it is for this reason that the water that flows from the Apuan springs is so pure, light and clear.
Authentic, like the region where it originates.
