Handmade terracotta floors



Fornace Polirone is continuig the centuries-old tradition of " Fornace Morselli" in Mantua. From 1982, Alberto Cappelli and Roberto Pasqualini, along with sisters Morselli ( Nadia and Norma), restarted the activity in an old kiln in Borgoforte, near Mantua. Using the old walnut molds they restarted to produce various types of artifacts (bricks, frames, floors, vases, etc.) Over time, it has improved the specialization in floors manufacturing, on specification or on sample.

In the early 90's, we received the major orders which made Fornace Polirone handicrafts known to the Authorities and to the most careful Architects. In fact, we realized the flooring of the main floor in Palazzo Sanvitale ( Parma), Chiesa dell'Incoronata in Sabbioneta, Palladio's Villa Saracena, etc.

The continuous passion and research in our handicrafts resulted in works and supplies even more demanding, such as the supply of more than 1,000 sq.m. for the boxes in Teatro alla Scala (Milan), the Church of San Cristoforo (Milan) and Castello Estense in Ferrara, as well as many other churches.

During 2006, Fornace Polirone floored Castello di Mirandola ( 3,000 sq.m.), Torre Medievale in Masana, near Carpaneto Piacentino, Castello di Weimar in Germany and Castello di Vaduz in Liechtenstein, as well as an important intervention on Mantegna's Camera degli Sposi in Castello di San Giorgio ( Mantua).

These prestigious achievements make us proud and encourage us to maintain high-level quality of our products.
