Manetti Gusmano & figli - Sannini Impruneta as supplier of the floor tile in cotto

We periodically manage the restauration of the different rooms of the prestigius Uffizi Museum in Florence. The product selected it is an unique hand-made tile with specific satin finish that we made for the Museum with the overview of the best arch. and architecture expert in Italy. The terracotta produced in the Manetti furnaces has always occupied a place of first order in the minds of the great architects of the world. The floors installed in the Uffizi Museum in Florence, the Hollywood Museum of Cinema in Los Angeles, testify to the variety and versatility of the range of solutions offered by the Manetti furnaces. Our company is also the official furnisher of tiles used for the restoration of Brunelleschi’s Dome in Florence. Our ancient craft has permitted us to mould the clay of Impruneta in wooden prints, in order to reconstruct the tiles of the eight “sails” of the Dome with painstaking manual labor.
