This startup ushers in a new era of sculpture

Carrara, the Italian city famous for some of the world’s finest marbles, has given birth to the masterpieces of Renaissance masters, such as Michelangelo and Antonio Canova. Now in the heart of the city’s quarry district, a startup aims to usher in a new era of sculpture in which robots pick up – or rather become – the chisel.

Founded by Filippo Tincolini and Giacomo Massari, Robotors mission is to revolutionize the industry by simplifying sculpting with the help of robotics and artificial intelligence. The aim is to make sculpture faster, easier and more sustainable, while enabling artists to create works that would otherwise be unthinkable.
