Located in the south of Turin's old town is the Crocetta district, home (at via F.lli Carle, on the corner between Corso Alcide De Gasperi and Corso Duca degli Abruzzi) to Residenza Carle, a residential building that has undergone a complete renovation, including a rearrangement of its internal spaces to create 21 apartments.
But a key aim of the project was to ensure maximum energy efficiency and this was achieved by adopting the most innovative measures offered by today's technology and contemporary architecture.

The Acidic series chosen for the Residenza Carle lends the building sophistication but also an original, unique personality.
Measuring 120×120 cm, the size of the slabs highlights the strength and warmth of the corten steel shade, combining tradition and creativity within a ceramics collection that brings out all the beauty of this metal. The seamless finish curtain walls built with Acidic, with its contrasting light and shade, increase the visual impact of the entire building.
But the aesthetics are not the only area in which the building has been enhanced. Fondovalle’s Italian-made porcelain stoneware also guarantees the maximum functional performance (in terms of durability and strength) that only ceramics can provide and has been integrated with a pioneering coat system to ensure full insulation with advanced thermal and energy specifications.

Habituè – Vin&Cuisine
In the centre of Nola, a small town in the province of Naples and a historical, cultural, and commercial centre, a particularly captivating restaurant has opened its doors for the first time.
Habituè - Vin & Cuisine has combined transformations in taste and architecture, in a location which began life as an apartment on the first floor of an eighteenth-century building near Piazza del Duomo.Infinito 2.0 Res art
Located in the place where one of Europe’s most important prehistoric cultures originated, Belgrade has two opposing souls brimming with identities which face up, briefly touch and then separate. Urban concrete and the coexistence of different ethnicities and traditions combine with art, design and a vibrant night life to offer visitors a city with an important past, but strongly oriented towards the future.
In this context, suspended between reminders of history and a focus on tomorrow, Ceramica Fondovalle’s Made in Italy products were selected to provide stylish, elegant coverings for some locations of Level UP, a luxury spa in the Serbian capital.
Different sizes and colour shades decorated the facility’s pool area with a blend of sophistication and welcoming warmth. The Fondovalle brand products enhanced the beauty of the floors and walls with the quality and refined aesthetic of porcelain stoneware.Portland Urban craft
