Description

Extruded and simply fired without surface interventions or treatments. The light and shaded finish obtained through the natural coloring of the salts brought to the surface before firing during the delicate drying phase.

The Manetti family has been producing terracotta for eight generations. Located in Ferrone, Italy, they produce exceptional quality terracotta tiles in strict compliance with the ancient traditions of Impruneta. The experience they have acquired in three centuries combined with the uniqueness of the clay used results in a material with distinctive characteristics in color, resistance, and robustness.

If we want to discover how the clay that has always been used for the production of terracotta was formed, we have to go back very far in time and space.
Our voyage would begin about two hundred million years ago, in the middle of what is now the Tyrrhenian Sea. At the bottom of the Ocean of Tethys, thousands of meters deep, with extreme conditions of temperature and pressure, where residues of the disintegration of the immersed surrounding lands were accumulating. Coastal plains periodically invaded by tides which bordered the area to the east and south with landscapes very similar to today’s tropical areas, with calcareous and evaporitic deposits.
