MATTONELLE ANTICHE

Mattonelle Antiche

We have always had a passion for reclaiming old things.

The interest in antique tiles in particular was born when we were looking for glazed tiles to decorate several rooms in our own house in the medieval quarter of Tivoli – what better choice than antique tiles!
It was the late 1970's when we began our collection of glazed tiles.

The search began in Sicily (Caltagirone and S. Stefano di Camastra) and Campania (in particular in the Vietri area and Naples) where we discovered le riggiole (antique Neapolitan tiles).


The marvel of discovering their history, the beauty of their glazes, of the designs and of their unique colours, then the amazement at finding them, at that time, in a certain quantity, gave us the idea to offer other enthusiasts the possibility of acquiring them.

Since the early 1980's we have worked in the historical centre of Rome – up to the end of the 1990's in Via dei Banchi Vecchi, then moving to Via dei Coronari. We are now based at Piazza dei Coronari in Via di Panico no. 26.
