Majolica, artisan tradition
Majolica is the defining element of the Piazzetta style and design. Ours is Europe’s largest majolica production plant, in which the skilled artisan crafting technique applied to this refined and unique material has been handed down for years. Working majolica is an art that requires time and patience. The results are remarkable: original and exclusive claddings that speak for themselves, capable of enhancing a variety of contexts, settings and styles.
Piazzetta and environmental protection
Each product undergoes rigorous laboratory tests to guarantee performances that respect the environment, through the containment of consumption and the sustainable use of resources. Careful selection of the materials and technological solutions used in the production processes has led to numerous certifications issued by leading institutes, certifying the conformity of the products to the most rigorous environmental protection standards.
Piazzetta and Asolo’s territory
The Piazzetta Group was founded and has grown at the foot of Asolo, a town rich in artistic treasures, defined by Giosuè Carducci the “city of a hundred horizons” to underline the superb views that open up from its hills. A gem of the Veneto region and of the Marca Trevigiana area, Asolo is also a world-renowned Italian manufacturing hub. In this backdrop, where cherished values are handed down, the Piazzetta Group continues to grow and shape its future by relying on style, technology, quality and values.
Research and technology
Piazzetta products stem from the on-going quest for rigorous laboratory tests aimed at improving the comfort for purchasers. Continuous research has allowed for developing innovative solutions, some of which are patented internationally. One such example is the Multifuoco® System, an exclusive Piazzetta solution that has revolutionised traditional heating systems. Our goal is to constantly guarantee the highest quality standards, maximum performance and lasting operation for our products.
