The Bernasconi Furnace has been producing handmade bricks and tiles since the seventies respecting old traditions. Founded by Marcello, the furnace is now run by his son Luigi Bernasconi together with his wife Doriana and his sister Silvia, that continue their father’s work. Luigi has two passions: historical restoration and innovative solutions. Blending the art of ancient traditions, with technological innovation, modern ethics and contemporary practicality and design. The clay is from Bernasconi’s own quarry. It is manually moulded and fired using chestnut wood shavings. This ensures a low environmental impact and high quality. A contemporary handmade terracotta, of guaranteed quality, using natural raw materials, producing value and character. The natural durability of the material has evolved and showcases a warm harmony of colours, each expressing its individuality.

The Bernaconi family has thus been able to pass on and inherit an art in which millennial traditions merge with technological, ethical and functional innovation dictated by contemporaneity and design.

Clay from its own quarry, manual molding and wood firing with national chestnut trimmings, guarantee a production process and a product with low environmental impact and high quality value.

We offer a contemporary handmade terracotta, whose quality is guaranteed by skilful gestures and natural raw materials, all focused on a product of absolute value and character.

The terracotta workshop produces a brick in which past and present are based. The natural durability of the material evolves into a warm and familiar harmony of colors: a stylistic means of expressing one’s individuality.

Tradition is a beauty to be preserved, not a bunch of chains to tie us together
