Dario Rossi is a prominent sculptor who left his home in Carrara, Italy to work in Elberton. Rossi learned his skills as an apprentice in studios in Carrara where white marble religious statues were carved. He moved to Elberton with his wife and son in the mid-1960s. Rossi designs and carves primarily on grave markers, embellishing them with images of Jesus, the Star of David, or angels. With a twinkle in his eye, he states that granite is an unforgiving stone. There are no ways to fix a carving mistake according to Rossi.
