This book, edited by Decio GR Carugati, runs through the images, words, and story of a company, the Marazzi, the leader of lifestyle changes since 1935. The process testifies that the ceramic has changed over time, in manufacturing processes, in the colors and designs, formats, in performance and destinations. Beba Marsano's work draws an interesting comparison with fashion, whether haute couture and pret-à-porter, illustrates the change in tastes over time, and approaches the most popular fashion designers (some designers series Marazzi), colors and materials specific to the different eras. Decio Carugati, through the words of the protagonists of the Marazzi adventure, says it is a brand that has developed and grown for decades, firmly connected to the life of our country, a pioneer in the application of new and sophisticated techniques for the production, present in one hundred and thirty countries in the world today. Maria Sebregondi sets an exponential piece around the tile and studies the phenomenology.
