Appiani

History Appiani mosaics has actively promoted its products on the Italian and international markets since it was first founded in Treviso in 1873. After initially focusing on the production of friezes, pan tiles and bricks, widely acknowledged for their high standards of quality in Italy and abroad, it turned to the production of pressed powdered clay tiles at the turn of the 20th century and created new systems for processing and firing materials. Its founder Graziano Appiani started production of the first coloured ceramic tiles in 1910 and built “Eden village” to provide housing for his workers in a village that had its own restaurant, cinema and theatre: the first example of a forward thinking style of business. Throughout the period of fascism in the Twenties, the company worked to deliver orders for floor tiles for barracks, hangars, hospitals and railway stations. After the end of the war, it started to produce the “red stoneware” that the company became famous for during the period of reconstruction and the years of the economic boom. In 1960, the Appiani family embarked upon a policy of modernisation and started to work on projects with designers such as Giò Ponti and Pompeo Pianezzola. It completed the building of an innovative production plant the following decade to make glazed porcelain stoneware using exclusive “monopressocottura” technology - single pressing and firing. The company was taken over by the Bardelli family in the Nineties, a well-known name in the industry, who decided to focus on reinstating tradition and heritage by developing the production of ceramic mosaics. Its manufacturing plant was completely updated in 2000 with the introduction of the latest automated systems and complete computerisation. Tradition Appiani.
