The winners of the 7th edition of the competition that selects the best architectural achievements made with Italian ceramic tiles

The 7th edition of La Ceramica e il Progetto, the architecture competition for the best constructed works made with Italian ceramic tiles completed from January 2015 to January 2018, open to architects and interior designers residing in Italy, has come to a conclusion.

The jury composed of Mario Cucinella, Fulvio Irace, Aldo Colonetti and Confindustria Ceramica assessed 78 projects for creativity, functional quality and taste, considering the design, the use of ceramic tiles, the quality of the installation and the environmental sustainability of the works.

For the Commercial category the winning project was the Rosalia Salad Gourmet in Florence, created by S+S Studio with tiles by Ceramica Sant’Agostino.

The project interprets the organization of spaces and the culture of interior design in a new and original way, identifying a compositional language of great decorative impact through the choice of the materials for the floors and facings.


In the Institutional category the winner was the project for the new headquarters of Prysmian Group in Milan by the architect Maurizio Varratta, involving the use of ceramic materials by Marazzi.

A project with an almost urban dimension, both in terms of size and in terms of the dialogue established between the interiors, the exteriors and the surrounding natural setting. The choice of using 16,000 m2 of ceramic materials for the floors and facings was dictated by functional and aesthetic parameters.



In the Residential category the prize went to Bernini2 La Villa e La Torre in Turin, by +Studio Architetti, for the use of tiles by Caesar, Keope, Kronos and Atlas Concorde.

The project triggers dialogue between past and future, intervening in an existing architectural situation, to create a new building inside an urban context of Turin originating in the 1950s. Here the Italian ceramic tile becomes a true symbol of construction in keeping with the values of our identity.


The jury also assigned three honorable mentions, one for each category.

In the Commercial section the mention went to the studio Peia Associati for the project Miriandhoo Resort in the Maldives, using tiles by Casalgrande Padana.

In the Institutional category the jury indicated the Collegio Universitario Einaudi in Turin, inside which the studio MAT Moretto Architettura made use of tiles by Marazzi.

Finally, the honorable mention in the Residential section went to Claudio Angelucci Architetto and Edgardo Toso for the Residence Lido Riccio in Ortona, featuring the use of ceramic facings by Cotto d’Este.
