Gaspare Cusenza founded CusenzaMarmi, an artisan company for the artistic working of marble, 50 years ago. In 2016 he is among only 75 Italian artisans to be included in the golden book of Italian artisan excellence, receiving the prestigious title of master of art in the presence of the head of state Sergio Mattarella.
in 2019, during the award ceremony of the 100 destinations of Italy, in Palazzo Madama, seat of the Senate, receives the title of virtuous ambassador of the territory.
Over the years he has specialised in the creation of so-called "antique copies", that is, works executed in the style of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
From this interest comes the research and rediscovery of ancient techniques and materials fallen into disuse: he rediscovers the jasper and the ancient yellow of Sicily, the "incarnated" stone; he revisits and reworks the Sicilian Baroque especially in the use of polychrome inlay inside the churches.
In the following years he hired young apprentices to pass on techniques and secrets of marble working, convinced that the difference lies in the human value able to exploit new technologies to perfect his craftsmanship, with modern taste, while maintaining the centrality of the human hand.
