Instituting  The MARBLE ARCHITECTURAL AWARDS (MAA) has aimed not only at the recognition of architects and designers’ talent  but also at the spreading of knowledge of the natural stone.

In this sense a relevant contribution has  come from the network of Italian  Agencies which operate to promote Italian commerce, particularly  ICE, the ITALIAN TRADE AGENCY, and TOSCANA PROMOZIONE, which focuses on the Region of Tuscany.

The latter have become IMM Partners and the combination of their  widespread presence in the international market with the qualified expertise  of IMM in the natural stone sector, has built the MAA into a highly regarded competition in the frame of  international architecture.

Precious support to the MAA has also come from Patronages, collaboration with prestigious Institutions and with Professional Associations of  Architects such as:
