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.
Cradle of the Slavic civilisation, melting pot of different cultures, bridge between the East and the West, today the city boasts an infinite array of both cultural and panoramic attractions. From Saint Sophia Cathedral to Saint Michael’s Monastery, through to the best known districts like Podil, Kyiv never ceases to amaze and is also home to numerous parks and important museums.
The city is also the location of the private Dobrobut clinics, jewel in the crown of the local health service, which consist of 12 medical centres qualified in accordance with modern international standards. Equipped with all the latest technologies, the Dobrobut Clinics are modern and welcoming facilities.
And it was in one of these facilities that the allure and functionality of Ceramica Fondovalle branded products was chosen to elegantly furnish some of the internal spaces of the building.Planeto

Private Residence in Greece
In Komotini, a town located in the Greek region of West Thrace, near the border with Turkey, Fondovalle was involved in the refurbishment of a 115 m2 apartment through a synergy between retailer Surfaces 2Modern Materials and architect Fotini Triantafyllidou.Dream Infinito 2.0 Komi Portland
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
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
