Indoor double-fired ceramic wall tiles
The Collection Puntini designed for Ceramica Francesco De Maio is a colorfully colored 20x20cm decoration system, "Mendini style" open to the language of the contemporary in this magical encounter between tradition and creativityall Made in Italy. A sort of colored nebula with infinite semantic and symbolic values of the most classic Vietri decorations and typical brushstrokes, caressed also by a decisive feminine touch, that of the Designer Anna Gili.
"The tradition of Vietri ceramics has always been in my mind: the materials, the brushstrokes, the Mediterranean colors. Now, finally, the Ceramica Francesco De Maio offers me the lucky opportunity to create a collection by myself. The opportunity is given to me by a wall that I had to prepare for the Red House museum in Anacapri. A wall made of polychrome tiles all the same, covered with endless small brushstrokes, a myriad of dots. This is how the "pointillist" matrix of my collection for Francesco De Maio was born in the form of art. A system of Dots, now small, now large and isolated, now aligned vertically or diagonally, in order to retrace that complex system that for many years has generated the style of Vietri, with its rare harmonies.
