Porphyry: an ideal material for walls
Porphyry is a particular type of volcanic rock belonging to the "Atesina Porphyry Platform", an
enormous complex of volcanic rocks that extends into the Trentino-Alto Adige region.
These rocks, extremely varied and differentiated, both as a chemical composition and as a form of
formation, are the result of an intense volcanic activity started 260 million years ago in the Permian
period, and continued for several million years with a continuous repetition of eruptive phases and
Among the various methods of deposition of these rocks, the so-called ignimbrites take on
particular importance, as these are the ones that gave rise to the "porphyry". These are flows of
liquid-gaseous mixtures with thicknesses generally ranging from 5 to 20 meters and with a fairly
constant chemism, up to the so-called ignimbritic unit, which reaches hundreds of meters thick.
Porphyry walls for public and private areas
Of pleasant effect are the porphyry walls of exposed walls that blend perfectly with the natural
landscape, erasing the unpleasant appearance of the concrete walls.
