Of Arabic origin, the term “inlay” refers to the art of making figures by skillfully inserting other elements of the same material on a flat surface. Marble inlays are very frequent but inlays are also common in wood, ivory and stones.
A marble inlay is able to express magnificence, by giving objects, furniture and floors an inestimable value. It is a true art, born in Asia Minor three hundred years before the birth of Christ, in the city of Tarsia, spread immediately with the Arab domination in all European courts, where nobles competed to surround themselves with artists able to create inlay marble crafts for them.
Today the quality of the inlays and decorations on marble has reached a high level, especially thanks to the techniques of marble decoration and the new generation inlay machines.
