Our Story

​​​Working together to give voice to expression! LIVING COTTO is a union of people who have an indescribable passion for real handmade terracotta. Our over twenty years of experience in matters related to ordinary and overtime work have allowed us to devote ourselves to the analysis of the results of the production feasibility studies, to the search for forms and their right proportions favorable to the realization of the required order, to the continuous research of craft techniques on the transformation of clay surfaces and colors: raw, fired and colored. 

Extra-vergine d'argilla

​​To make each single element we use degassed and microfiltered clays (with absolute absence of impurities) printed exclusively by hand in forms, commonly called moulds, with a sprinkling of Italian pleocene sands. To have a minimum impact on the environment, we only use recovered rainwater to mix the clays and at least 50% of the production requirement comes from renewable energy sources. The firing of the artifacts takes place in wood-burning ovens, where once cooked the product takes on the most unpredictable and unrepeatable shades of color. In this place, where every single tile produced is passed from hand to hand over 20 times before being delivered to our client, undergoing transformations and rigorous qualitative selections, we have made our pact with "taste", giving life to collections that time they have been a source of inspiration for works of international historical-artistic prestige.
