Cava La Beola

Cava La Beola di Monte is a historic quarry of marble and granite extraction, located between the shores of Lake Maggiore and Val D’Ossola.The marble’s veining reflect the dynamism of the epic surroundings: the Cava is immersed in one of Northern Italy’s most evocative valleys.


Nextones is an international festival of music, audiovisual arts and research. Taking place in the evocative area of the Ossola Valley, its cornerstone is Tones Teatro Natura, a major environmental redevelopment project by Tones on the Stones that transformed a disused quarry into a theater immersed in nature. 
Since its first edition, the festival has combined an international music proposal and site-specific performances with a series of activities devoted to the discovery of the natural landscape of the Ossola Valley and to the interaction between artists, the public and the territory, including hikes in the Uriezzo Gorge, talks, screenings, deep listening workshops, sound meditations and artistic residencies. Over the years, the stage at Tones Teatro Natura featured performances by the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Nina Kraviz, Richie Hawtin, Squarepusher, and VTSS.
