Welcome to the Marazzi Ceramics blog dedicated to design, architecture and ceramics. A space to talk about the ceramics and stoneware Marazzi is famous for all over the world, but also about new projects, experiences and interesting news.

Additive manufacturing, a new approach to furniture design

They have now come together in a furnishing collection designed and produced by the ELLI brand, in which Marazzi plays a key role in creation of the surfaces.
Marazzi’s history through its advertising campaigns. A look back over innovations but above all over changing Zeitgeists and visual communication languages. From the choice of metaphors to the use of images to convey technologies and the construction of aspirational sets.
