What distinguishes Italian mosaics
Italy is known all over the world as the country of art and good taste. Artistic beauties are everywhere. Indeed, it is not surprising that the Bel Paese (an appellative for Italy that literally means “beautiful country”) has got the highest number of arts and culture assets that were proclaimed UNESCO World Heritage sites. Art is one of Italy’s main resources.
The success of the Made in Italy industry at international level is due to the mastery, the savoir faire and a baggage of knowledge and experience in which creativity, artisanal tradition, applied techniques and technological innovation blend.
In the luxury villas belonging to the wealthy people of the world, the direct use of Italian manpower for the manufacturing of wall and floor decorations and mosaics is often a surplus value that makes the price of the real estate increase. Italian artisanal tradition is considered a synonym for quality, reliability, good taste and safety.
Italian materials: marble is a synonym for luxury
Italian marble is one of the most appreciated and sought-after materials within the world of luxury. Whether it’s loft apartments furnished in contemporary style or luxury villas that belonged to old aristocratic families, the most prestigious Italian marbles, from Red Verona Marble, to White Carrara Marble, to Verdello Marble, to Botticino Sicilia Marble, seem to make everyone agree. Italian marble is widely used in contemporary design for indoors and outdoors.
White Carrara Marble is one of the most famous marbles worldwide for its incomparable aesthetic qualities. Other much appreciated marbles are Botticino Sicilia Marble, which conveys a classic, Mediterranean charm, the precious and refined Red Verona Marble, the homogeneous white and green Verdello Marble, and Portoro Marble, native to the La Spezia area.
Italian porcelain and ceramics are also used to manufacture tiles for floorings featuring custom-made motifs.
