LUSTRI VENEZIANI project is an idea which was born from the history, the millenary one of the Possagno kilns, where the unique quality of the clay’s quarries has allowed the production of bent tiles, roof tiles and floor tiles with exceptional durability features and the artistic one of Nove di Bassano del Grappa ceramics, admired and researched since the eighteenth century. The ingenious intuition of Industrie Cotto Possagno has been to join the forces into a synergy of knowledges, coordinated by Mr. Giovanni Vardanega.

Mr. Andrea Sebellin, descending and heir of one of the historic kilns of Nove di Bassano, the ancient memory’s majolicaware makers , whose grandfather, Mr. Teodoro Sebellin, was one of the most illustrious representatives, takes care of the decorations and of the Lustri Veneziani burning, working oxides, metals and glass powders with natural dexterity to create surfaces with incredible colors.

Mr. Bruno Rosa, historical collaborator is a family tradition: his father, Mr. Otello Rosa, painter and sculptor, Artistic Director of Ceramiche San Polo, was one of the greatest exponents of the art in the 50’s in Venice. The same gene has been inherited by his son Bruno, designer and planner, whose visionary compositions of Lustri Veneziani make precious the most disparate environments.

More than tiles, they are handwork with an exquisitely artistic and emotional look, incomparable for colors and shades, with an irregular surface, which offer many possibilities to the fantasy of the designer for very high quality applications.
