The history

Choosing an ITALCALCE product means relying on a tradition and an expertise born in 1948, when Luigi Di Crocco decided to turn his own “craft” into a real Lime Industry.

Sixty years have passed since those “heroic” times, when the calcareous stones were transformed into quicklime after being cooked inside primordial furnaces built in the ground, fuelled by wood, shrubs and every combustible material offered by that time.

Nowadays ITALCALCE, the best heritage of that courageous adventure started up by Luigi Di Crocco, has reached the highest levels of updating in the sector, becoming a leading company proudly aware of its past history, when men counted more than machines.
