Small but full of life, provincial but steeped in history, and filled with tourist attractions, Tartu is held to be the 'spiritual' capital of Estonia and is also home to one of the oldest universities in Northern Europe, with students making up one seventh of the city's population.

Tartu is a very compact city, with most of its tourist attractions and restaurants located along a couple of parallel streets. It is here that Lucky Loore, a luxury venue offering traditional bar games, is located.
It is an original and stylish haunt, whose exclusive interior design (the result of a recent renovation) has made the various areas in the bar even more modern and welcoming. Fondovalle’s contribution has further enhanced the spaces, through the choice of a contemporary collection that carefully combines the technology and innovation of porcelain stoneware with the traditional prestige of Venetian Terrazzo tile.
Shards Large Black, the product chosen for the floors and walls of Lucky Loore, takes a great Italian classic and gives it a contemporary ceramic twist.
Private Residence Spain
In Pamplona, an important stop along the Way of St James and capital city of the Chartered Community of Navarre in northern Spain, Fondovalle has played a leading role in the renovation of a private home. More specifically, it is a stylish, contemporary set of apartments in which the communal areas have been refurbished using the Action series, in the Light version.Action
Les Jardins de Madeleine
In the north-eastern tip of France on the west bank of the Rhine river, near the border with Germany and Switzerland lies Alsace, a crossover of cultures which is one of the smallest but also most fascinating regions of France.
Bernardvillé extends along the legendary Route des Vins, or the Wine Route, in a natural, perfectly preserved panoramic route consisting of 170 km of vineyards. In this area stands the Domaine Les jardins de Madeleine wine estate.Komi
bakery & hotel (BED-BIKE-BREAD)
Located in the tourist village of Csopak, in Hungary, Buborék Csopak offers a cosy place for cyclists and nature walk enthusiasts to stay all year round, accompanied by various other services (BED-BIKE-BREAD). The building was completely refurbished in June 2022 to create a location that houses not only a bakery, but also a bike shop and a hotel. The upper floor has been repurposed to provide a comfortable place where travellers can stay the night and recharge their batteries (in more ways than one!).
What architects Eszter Bertóty and Edit Móder were aiming for was to create a space that was both functional and inviting, featuring a clean contemporary design born from a fusion of Scandinavian and Mediterranean moods.
Bathed in neutral tones, the interiors are furnished with modern furniture with natural materials predominating throughout. Inside the building then, the bakery's characteristic counter, the fireplace, and the bathrooms walls are all tiled with Ceramica Fondovalle porcelain stoneware from the Res Art collection, in the Talc, Pottery and Mud shades.Res art
Pizzeria Meggie La Capricciosa
An ambitious project and a sentimental choice (akin to love), the Maggie La Capricciosa pizzeria owes its name to its owners' passion for pizza. Celebrating their love of traditional Neapolitan pizzas, the pizzeria has taken the name of the classic of classics, the Margherita, and invented a pet name for it, Maggie.Shards
ALEJA shopping centre in Ljubljana
The Aleja shopping centre was constructed with materials of the very highest quality. Ceramica Fondovalle was chosen to cover the interiors of the delicatessen sector of the Interspar hypermarket with concrete effect porcelain stoneware tiles from the Portland collection, in Lassen colour and 120x60 size.
Thanks to the striking patterning which resembles hand-trowelled concrete, the overall visual impact is extremely attractive. The simple, neutral colour adds value to the location, transforming the area into a small corner to be savoured with the eyes.Portland
