The Granito della Colonna di Nostro Signore and Granito di Santa Prassede (n. 11 - 27 , the slight difference between the two is in the geological texture) is the type of marble of the column that, the tradition says, Jesus Christ was flogged on before his Via Crucis. Santa Prassede basilica, in Rome, houses a segment of the alleged pillar upon which Jesus was flogged and tortured before his crucifixion in Jerusalem. The relic is alleged to have been retrieved in the early 4th century by Saint Helena (mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine I) who at the age of eighty undertook a pilgrimage to Golgotha in the Holy Land to found churches for Christian worship and to collect relics associated with the crucifixion of Jesus in Calvary.
