An inspiration and refuge for painters, writers, poets and film-makers, the Tuscany region is dotted with walled towns, cobbled streets, Renaissance palaces, lush green vineyards, rusty forests, alabaster churches, historic cafes artisan marble and wood workshops. Brimming with history, archaeology, nature and gastronomy, this is an idyllic setting where you can sit back and enjoy the stunning sunsets, glass of Chianti Classico in hand.
This is the landscape PORCELANOSA has recreated in its Cotto collection, with ceramic tiles echoing the texture of traditional terracotta: a return to their Tuscan origins. This material was one of the most-used by architects and sculptors in the Renaissance period, who created busts, portraits and altarpieces in homage to the Etruscan period, replacing the theocratic imagery of old with illustrious and political figures of ancient Rome.
A sunset in Tuscany
This villa, surrounded by olive trees, oaks and cypresses and built using PORCELANOSA collections stands out for its natural, Mediterranean design. The diaphanous terrace opens onto the Italian countryside, with the wooden flooring complemented by geometric wicker lamps, wrought iron lanterns, linen textiles and baskets of flowers.
The décor entices you to sit back and enjoy a dreamy sunset, flanked by the impressive Cotto floor tiles by PORCELANOSA in earthy hues (Cáñamo and Colonial), a large format (120 cm x 120 cm and 59.6 cm x 59.6 cm) design with excellent resistance, also available in a non-slip version.
Cotto is the sheer embodiment of the magic of Tuscany.
