The complex Gioia-Casette, located on the top of the ridge which divides the Carrione and Frigido valleys, includes six quarries: Vittoria A, Vittoria B, Piastrone 1, Piastrone 3, Lavagnina, Ravalunga and Gioia.
All are in the municipality of Massa, except the Piastrone 3 and the Lavagnina quarries which are in the municipality of Carrara. Due to the characteristics of the quarried marble, their location, and the typical mineral assemblages of the cavities, all these quarries are often considered as part of the Colonnata quarrying basin of Carrara.

At Gioia quarries most of the mineral species known for the Carrara marble cavities have been found.
