Sir Vincenzo Scancella, founder of Marmi Scancella and pioneer of the Orosei Daino marble sector. In fact, he was the first one to understand the potential of the material and to start extraction in Orosei.

In 1986 the companies from Sardinia teamed with the Verona-based company, La Quadrifoglio Marmi. From the outset the new company was entrusted with an important commercial and strategic role. Among the employees of the time, almost all are still at work today, we can see Ms. Anna Scancella, in the middle between her two sons, Marco on the left and Luca on the right.

In the same year BS Quarrysar Group was founded, the company that brings together the three family businesses, even in name. BS is in fact the acronym for the two surnames, Buonfigli-Scancella.
In 2010 Quadrifoglio Marmi was completely renovated. The modern building was conceived entirely as a showroom. From the entrance to the stairs, from the meeting room to the offices, each area is designed to bring out the various characters of Orosei Daino marble.
Investments in technology and research are becoming increasingly important. Attention to quality, worker safety and the protection of the environment earned the company three TUV certifications in 2017.
