Mipa

Mipa was founded in 1992 and its mission was to unearth the authentic and traditional techniques that characterised Marble Terrazzo tile production at the end of the 19th century. Through a process of historical and stylistic research and staying true to tradition Mipa has developed a selection of the most beautiful floors of the era’s Liberty-style homes. Each day at Mipa expert hands, using copper ladles, work the liquid body mix, then fill the bronze moulds that will reproduce the decorative tiles.
It is in this way that something truly original is created, reinventing itself every time with authentic forms, lines and colours, but always faithful to the secrets of one of the most refined artistic traditions.
It was with passion and determination, together with a joint commitment to this cultural project and involvement by all the members of the company, that brought to fruition the rediscovery and re-evaluation of Graniglia floors.

From its very conception, Mipa activated the recovery of the original cast bronze moulds from the scattering of antique manufacturing sites that had been left abandoned throughout the Italian peninsula. As such, the same original moulds that once upon a time were used to create the decorative tiles that enhanced aristocratic homes, were recovered and restored.Mipa also sought to understand, by speaking to the original craftsmen, the secrets of the body mixes. Those same secrets that held the recipe for the raw ingredients of water, marble granules and chips, cement and natural oxide colorants.
Today Mipa may say with pride that it has succeeded in restoring Marble Terrazzo to its original glory, by following the path of research into history and style and by remaining faithful to traditional production techniques, without reverting to processes that could compromise the technical, aesthetic and qualitative properties of the final product.
