PALAGIO HEADQUARTERS

headquartersPalagio Engineering is located in the Chianti area near Florence, famous not only for its wine production and beautiful nature but also for its terracotta manufactures: indeed this area is rich of unique and prestigious clay which allows to obtain a durable and frost-resistant material with excellent chromatic characteristics.

“Palagio”, since the mid-80s, is a name associated with experience and innovation in the field of flooring Cotto Impruneta.

Since 1992, after years of studies and experiments, take shape the first dedicated products for Rainscreen facade. The tile “Terra” is born, the first in Cotto Impruneta manufactured for this purpose. Years of work and collaborations with leading Architectural Offices contributed to the technical development of the company. We can proudly claim to have started a new field of application for the TerraCotta giving a contemporary look to a product with a great tradition. The opportunity of using a “ductile” and “full of history” material takes the form of standard or special products, at the same time, that allow innovative design and creativity for the architect.

In 2005, thanks to the important results achieved in facade, Palagio Engineering Srl was born a division dedicated to providing “turnkey” ventilated facades and sunshades projects. The company is organized with a technical department for product development, executive design and management of construction sites. New departments with facilities for manufacturing of slabs and to extrude and assemble aluminum are opened. With this structure and the investments begins a phase of strong momentum in the evolution of the products and service, the Tile family “Terra” grows and develops with new types of “standard” shapes and “custom” dedicated to specific projects.

The aluminum substructures are expanded in many variation integrated in the different family of slabs and engineered with safety, aesthetics and practicality in mind.

We can count on the know-how gained cooperating with the most important International Architectural Offices. A total of over 5,500,000 square feet of Terracotta walls are already put in place in Italy and in the world: Seoul, Shanghai, Tokyo, Sydney, Kuwait City, Singapore and still AbuDhabi, Jeddah, Beirut, Boston, London, Amsterdam, Zurich, Prague, Milan, Florence , Venice, Rome, etc..

TUSCANY AND TERRACOTTA ORIGINS

TUSCANY AND TERRACOTTA ORIGINS

In Tuscany the production of Terracotta objects was already known in the VIII century B.C. when the Etruscans created terracotta vases illustrating scenes of daily life.
The Impruneta's area have etruscan origins, then was controlled by Romans. Agricolture and traditional terracotta handcrafts are the best resources of this beautiful territory.
This area is rich of unique and prestigious clay which allows to obtain a durable and frost-resistant material with excellent chromatic characteristics called Cotto di Impruneta.
Terracotta production is proven by authentic documents since 1098. 
On 23rd March 1309, local producers met to sign a notary deed, today preserved in the Florence State Archives, that documents the birth of the corporation of Fornaciari Imprunetini (Impruneta kilns). 
The proximity with Florence gave the opportunity to develop this terracotta industry in late middle-age, strogly affecting economic, social and cultural life.
In 1419 Filippo Brunelleschi selected impruneta's terracotta to build the Dome of Santa Maria del Fiore in Firenze because of solidty and lightness of the slabs. The terracotta industry developed and grew up along the centuries combining traditional techniques with modern scaled up production techniques.
