I know. Could you even find anyone in France who knows how to fix “winding marble staircases”? And even if you could could even a Russian mafia boss afford the French marble staircase workers union rates?

There is a place in northern Italy, where tons of marble is pulled out and made into whatever you desire. I’m pretty sure that they can find a hundred Italians around who could still cut and fit a winding stairway in the old methods. I would agree...in England and France...there might be just two or three guys left. But in Italy? There’s probably 500 of these guys around.
