Lecce stone is a lime­stone rock that be­longs to the mar­bled cal­caren­ite cat­e­gory and dates back to the Miocene age. The Lecce stone is a rocky for­ma­tion typ­i­cal of the Sa­lento re­gion, noted above all for its pli­a­bil­ity and ease of work­ing. For 150 years and four gen­er­a­tions, Pimar have ex­ploited this ma­te­rial to of­fer it to the build­ing in­dus­try in the lo­cal area. Today, with the Diamante col­lec­tion of fin­ishes, that have been in­spired by the aris­to­cratic res­i­dences in the prin­ci­pal Ital­ian cities dur­ing the se­cond half of the 14th cen­tury, dec­o­rated with geo­met­ric pat­terns made up of di­a­mond shapes, the ar­chi­tect wanted to draw at­ten­tion to the strongly sculp­tural el­e­ment seen in Ital­ian ar­chi­tec­ture dur­ing that time. The se­ries is ar­tic­u­lated in five dif­fer­ent ver­sions in which pyra­mids and wedge-shapes have been ar­ranged in an ir­reg­u­lar pat­terns to cre­ate highly orig­i­nal in­ter­pre­ta­tions of stone sur­faces.
