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.
For centuries, Cotto Manetti terracotta tiles have been renowned for their unique durability and colouration. Extending from the deep burnt orange usually associated with terracotta into rarer dark tones and even black, Cotto Manetti terracotta is the densest in the world, which results in an exceptionally robust tile. These properties can be traced to the late Triassic period, some 200 million years ago, when the Apennine Mountains began to form beneath what is now the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Mediterranean. The combination of heat, pressure and the composition of the landmass generated a unique terracotta clay unlike any other on Earth.
Cotto Manetti terracotta is available in a number of tile designs, shapes, mosaics and also furniture.
