The use of brickwork in buildings comes from ancient times: these are constructive elements that humanity uses for over 5,000 years. With much dedication and experience, we are now producing terracotta tiles handmade using the same techniques and the same materials: wooden molds, clay from our quarry, rain water and baking in a wood oven.

Our workshop provides cotto handmade by the warm nuances synonymous with familiarity, strength and versatility.



Fornace Bernasconi is not a factory but a craft workshop: the dream is to keep alive the essential traditions of our fathers, our history and our land, without losing sight of the style of healthy and modern living. Attention to detail and craftsmanship with the ultimate aim of satisfying customers with seriousness and professionalism.

The passion for the ancient art of handmade terracotta bricks, accompanied by the experimentation of innovative solutions, is expressed through different shapes and colors, processes and finishes to meet the needs of the most attentive customers, respecting the technical characteristics required by a handcrafted building material.

Tradition therefore meets innovation in a method of craftsmanship which, through a particular treatment and cooking of clay, leads to the creation of high quality handmade terracotta capable of making each home truly unique.

From floors to roofs and attics, from masonry elements to glazed terracotta claddings to finish with furnishing elements with classic and modern shapes: all for the creation of unique, natural and functional environments.
