In the furnaces of Manetti Gusmano & figli located in Ferrone, in the midst of the territory of Chianti (the town of Greve in Chianti), we produce Cotto Fiorentino tiles and artisanal terracotta products of exceptional quality, in strict compliance with the ancient traditions of Impruneta.
The experience acquired in three centuries of activity combined with the uniqueness of our clay result in a material with unique characteristics. The clay of Galestro present in the quarries of our furnaces is indeed an exclusive particularity of the territory of Chianti and it confers to our terracotta floors and products special qualities in terms of color, resistance, robustness and porosity.
The cotto made in Fornace Manetti has always held a leading position in the mind of the greatest world architects.
The floors installed in the Uffizi Museum in Florence, in the Hollywood Cinema Museum in Los Angeles and inside the Miami airport testify to the variety and versatility of the range of Manetti furnace solutions.
The company is also the official supplier of the tiles used for the restoration of the Brunelleschi’s Dome in Florence. Our ancient profession has allowed us to mold, on wooden molds, the land of Impruneta, to reconstruct with a patient manual work, the tiles of the eight sails of the dome.
Our activity, since 1955, has seen us protagonists in distributing the Tuscan cotto in our area. Over the years, we have supplied cotto surfaces for homes, public places, squares … up to our days: this year we have made official the relationship with the company “Cotto Manetti Gusmano & figli” which, for over three centuries, has handed over the art of cotto.
