“Terrazzo” originated in the 15th century in Venice as an attractive way to use leftover pieces of marble, granite and quartz, which were mixed with cement to form a single compound, like an irregular mosaic in appearance. It was widely used both for its durability and because it could be used to create patterns.
However, while the original terrazzo was composed of a mix of little fragments scattered in the cement, the terrazzo made today is a mix of slivers of larger sizes, less dense and with more surprising graphics.
Terrazzo allows for a variety of applications and interesting color combinations, making it an extremely versatile, eye-catching collection. Suitable for both residential and commercial settings, it blends attractively with both modern and traditional styles, bringing a unique touch to both.
