Projects Gallery, Italian ceramics around the world

The Projects Gallery hosted on the website La Ceramica Italiana ( now contains more than 300 reports of projects completed in Italy and worldwide using Italian ceramic tiles produced by 74 different companies. These include 36 projects (relating to 26 brands) uploaded in the second half of 2013 alone. Written by leading architectural journalists, these reports explore projects carried out by high-quality architecture and interior design firms who have succeeded in harnessing the aesthetic and technical qualities of Italian ceramic tiles in many different applications, both residential and non-residential.
Recently uploaded projects include Hirshleifer’s Shoe Salon in Manhasset (New York), the Indu and Raj Soin Medical Center in Beavercreek (USA), the Mozart Vital Hotel in Ried im Oberinntal (Austria), the Accademia Panino Giusto in Milan, Casa Eur in Rome, and Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester.
Within the general gallery the projects are divided up by intended use: urban residential, non-urban residential, shopping, recreational and socialisation, public hospitality, culture, sports, business, manufacturing, transportation, healthcare and urban design. Each section contains projects with the same intended use and includes an extensive photo gallery which can be clicked on to go to the individual project reports complete with detailed descriptions including the title of the work, the author, the designer, and the brand and technical specifications of the ceramic products used. Although highly varied, these projects share the use of Italian ceramics as a raw material for stimulating creativity and achieving a range of visually diverse solutions.

The new gallery can be accessed in two different ways, through the “project of the week” or the “general gallery”.
Each week the “project of the week” section offers a report on a selected project, including the key features and technical characteristics of the ceramic products used. After listing the various parties involved (tile and sanitaryware manufacturer, distributor, architecture firm and installation material supplier), the most significant aspects of the project are outlined in a journalistic report extensively illustrated with photographs. The technical specifications of the chosen products are also provided.
