Ceramic tiles - The handmade support is manufactured with local clay manually moulded into wooden moulds, it is manually cut into pieces with a steel wire, when still raw, once worked-out. It is air dried for nearly thirty days and then fired. Subsequently, the support is dipped into a white enamel, allowed to dry, decorated by hand, and then fired again at high temperature. The beauty of this tile lies the thickness variable between 1,2 – 1,5 cm, (in the tactile varying surface texture) in the surface which is not completely flat, and the rounded irregular edges.
Ceramic tiles - The industrial support has a thickness of 0,8 cm,a perfectly flat surface and regular edges. Surfaces design products are dipped into a white glaze, let dry and eventually decorated by hand. Colours will be more brilliant and glossy thanks to the traditional process of the double firing, fixing the glaze on the previously fired body.

The top layer is made of Portland cement, washed clean marble grit and, marble powder and colored oxides to about 8 mm thick; the second layer is a high strength concrete made with selected inert materials and a thickness of about 1.7 cm.

The crushing and blending of powders of marble and the variability of the raw materials can give rise to different hues in the floors.
