In this new stage of the quarry, Líthica wants to highlight its
essence as an area of stone, as well as the
techniques that were used to create it. Therefore, the tasks undertaken and the
techniques used in the quarry bring back and
reinterpret the legacy of the old stoneworkers,
working in the architecture of caves and excavated
rocks, creating the space through the extraction of stone.
Work on the rock
Safety wall at the ramp that leads to the
Amphitheatre quarry, made by lowering the level of the ground.
Extension of the amphitheatre stage and removal of
steps inside the quarry by lowering the level of the ground. The extracted
stone was used as building material to make the upper surface of the stage.
Stairs to connect the inside area of one of the
quarries with the upper area by excavating the stairwell and carving the steps.
Other works that applied techniques which respected
the stone landscape include:
Safety walls were built imitating the marks
left by the disc on the walls of the quarries where stone was extracted mechanically.
The identifying marks and signs
for the different areas were engraved on the stone.
