Aganippe Pavimenti, the
Temple of the Marble Grits
Saying Aganippe and saying grit is the same thing.
Already in 1830 this industrious family excelled in the manufacture of terracotta bricks and in the processing of cement for crosses and fountains.
But the passion for art and beauty soon led the company to devote itself first to the production of decorated tiles in cement only, and then to that of grit tiles.
In 1910 the first, characteristic Aganippe factory saw the light in the small Fossacesia.
It stood between the railway used for the transport of raw materials and the sea, near a stream where to draw water for the mixture of those natural elements that would no longer change over time: white concrete, fine micro-grit of the best marbles Italians, marble dust.
Strengthened by this past, this innate sense of beauty, in the mid-eighties the engineer Arnaldo Aganippe, now at the helm of the company, made them make the leap in quality.
In the wake of an architectural trend aimed at rediscovering evocative classic and natural materials, Aganippe invests with determination on its rich know-how, becoming synonymous with grits within a few years.
