variegated cotto was one of the most popular materials in italy during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and was used for flooring in many churches and historic mansions. this unusual marbled surface is obtained by expert hand-crafting techniques where clays with different compositions are mixed to create a pattern of layers that are unique to each mix. once fired, the marbling of clays intensifies revealing their chromatic diversity.

from the fornace brioni 'formati tradizionali' line of cotto, cotto variegato Ø8 is a marbled mix of fornace brioni's bianco and grey Ø1 clay bodies.

about this collection

fornace brioni features an extraordinary collection of both traditional terracotta and glazed ceramic tiles made in collaboration with architect and designer cristina celestino.

the traditional terracotta - or cotto - heralds from gonzaga, a small town in the lombardy region of Italy steeped in renaissance history and renowned for its terracotta. these tiles are still created by hand by the family-run company, now in its third generation, headed by alberto brioni.

created from the finest clays from the floodplain of the river po, cotto is nothing more than the combination of water and earth that when exposed to fire, creates a subtle alchemy that becomes embodied in each tile. both natural and ecological, each hand-made tile is unique and offers the best of italian craftsmanship.

as part of their collaboration, cristina celestino explores the traditional history of fornace’s cotto and teases out interpretations that are at once contemporary and rooted in familiarity. the further addition of glazed ceramic tiles round out the offerings with bright modern color choices and sleek lines. the resulting collections delve into themes of classical architecture, with nods to renaissance grottos and italian gardens, and a subtle playfulness enhanced by clean modern forms.


what grout joint size, type, and color do you recommend?

clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq grout for this collection. we recommend a 3/8" grout joint for cotto variegato, cotto rosato, cotto grigio, bibiena and cotto tivoli.

Grout color selection is always up to our client and/or their design professional. However, clé is often asked for our opinion on best grout selections for our tiles. And due to the large array of grout colors that are now available, clé would like to offer this general guideline on a foolproof grout color selection for any of your clé tiles.

  • First, have your professional tile contractor complete your tile installation, except for the grout portion.
  • Next, when ready to grout, ask your contractor to bring ALL grout color charts from his preferred grout manufacturers, for your review.
  • Lastly, choose a time of day when you are most pleased with the lighting in your space (either natural lighting, installed lighting or a blend of both). During that lighting and time of day, select the grout color that best matches your tile selection.

Note that the full Mapei Flexcolor CQ color catalogue contains 40 colors to choose from. Visit the Mapei website to view.

Why do you suggest i order at least 15% more than my measurements?

Industry standard suggests adding at least 15% overage due to tile cuts, potential breakage, or future repairs.
