Description

The “Medievale finish” is obtained by following a specific technique which consists of spreading out some ash under the wooden moulds. When fired at 1000 C° the ash gives a very nice and rustic finish (lighter colour). The opaque light pink-white colour absorbs the light and throws out unmistakable reflections and tones, and the irregularities make each element unique and unrepeatable

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 colour, resistance, and robustness.

In the Manetti Gusmano & figli Furnaces, located at the Ferrone, in the territory of Impruneta, Terracotta flooring and cladding tiles, as well as artisanal Terracotta elements, are made following the traditions of Impruneta.
The experience acquired in three centuries of activity combined with the uniqueness of clay translates into a material with unique characteristics. Galestro clay, present in the quarries of the Fornace, represents an exclusive peculiarity of the Impruneta area and gives the Terracotta special characteristics in terms of color, resistance, strength, and porosity.
