Pietra Tiburtina is a porcelain stoneware collection in which relive precious Italian heritage full of charm and history comes to life. Fragments of stone gush from the cavities of ancient Tibur to take us on a journey through history. Widely used since the days of Ancient Rome as an ornamental and construction material, travertine or lapis tiburtinus, as it was once known, has maintained its unlimited potential throughout the centuries, inspiring artists and architects of every era.

Casalgrande Padana’s new Pietra Tiburtina collection comes in both a vein-cut version, which emphasizes the lengthwise layers of limestone, and a cross-cut version, with an antiqued finish also available, which highlights the subtle cloud-like effects and gives the tiles an aged flavor of times gone by. Both versions combine stone’s charm and porcelain stoneware’s sturdiness. Delicate earthy shades, beautiful streaks and a three-dimensional play of light and shadow give these tiles a texture full of charm and elegance. A tribute to travertine’s beauty and potential that becomes a canvas for architects and interior designers to unleash their creativity.
