|Abstract:||Portoro is one of the most famous Italian black limestones due to its characteristic golden-yellow veins on a black background. It was used since Roman times, mainly in the city of Luni. Since the Middle Ages, its use is widespread in Genoa, and from the XVII century, it be- came one of the most common stones in religious buildings throughout Italy. At the end of the XIX century, its use has spread abroad, particularly in Europe and USA. It was extracted in several quarrying areas located near La Spezia, but at present, only five quarries are active. This stone, exposed to weathering, tends to bleach losing the appear- ance of its golden streaks that determine its aesthetic ap- peal. This research deals with the petrographic and chemical characterization of the Portoro macchia larga variety as well as the study of its chromatic alteration in order to define guidelines for the most suitable use of this stone and for restoration works.|
