Giorgio Agosta was born in the town of Pozzallo, a province of Ragusa, Sicily, Italy. He carries on his family tradition passed down from his grandfather, as a master marble craftsman. Griorgio has crafted marble for the past 51 years. As a young boy, he assisted with the stone work of the Church of Saint Giovanni Battista in Pozzallo, Italy.
He has been in the U.S. since 1987 and in the Nashville area since 1997, fashioning marble and granite and homes and businesses across the middle Tennessee area. If you ask Giorgio his strength in his work, he will respond that he is a “perfezionista” that is, “a perfectionist” To Giorgio the finished work is an extension of himself, his life, and his Italian heritage.
Working in marble and granite allows him to create lasting works that will be enjoyed beyond one’s lifetime. Knowing that his work will be admired for decades motivates him to do the very best work, just like Michelangelo did in Italy centuries ago.
