The stone as a point of reference, the identity of each block as a source of inspiration, the colours and images created by each slab as a tool for design and composition. The Old Continent provides the conceptual foundations and splendour of Pietre di Paragone, the collection of porcelain stoneware tiles by Casalgrande Padana that evoke the natural world, a world untouched by urbanisation.
With Pietre di Paragone, our gaze returns to our land, to stones that are often forgotten or barely known, yet no less fine than precious marble or exotic materials.
An ever-present in architecture over the centuries, the materials providing the inspiration for the collection have changed the appearances of our cities - let alone of our buildings - and made a notable contribution to raising the qualitative bar of common architecture, as well as grand projects.
Materials easily recognisable for their appearance, character and salient features: from the typical traits of the Swiss granite Onsernone to Grè from Lake Iseo, from the Vals stone to the Solnhofen from Germany, the bearer of a unique, millennial history enhanced by the many fossils it holds.
This elegant and versatile collection provides a precious medium for designers and architects to create flooring and cladding of great charm and aesthetic value, with all of the top-quality technological attributes indicative of Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware: resistance to use, clashes, slipping, stains and sudden temperature changes, even in the most extreme situations and circumstances.
Available in a wide range of colours and a choice of three finishes (natural, lapped and outdoor), the tiles are also available in large 60x120 and 60x60 cm formats, enabling you to create infinite combinations to decorate interior and exterior flooring and cladding, raised walkways, ventilated walls or tile façades.
The Pietre di Paragone collection is also available in Bios Antibacterial, with certified antibacterial properties, and Bios Self-Cleaning®, which features impressive self-cleaning properties and reduces pollutants.
