The new swimming pool and vascular treatment path at the Terme di Castel San Pietro thermal baths complex in Bologna was opened on 16 March, with a ceremony attended by representatives of the main authorities.
Conceived and designed to offer a better welcome and greater comfort through the introduction of special, advanced technologies, the area has been completely renovated in both the rehabilitation area and in the changing rooms, to make these areas more appealing, elegant, and modern.

Fondovalle played a significant part in achieving this, through its supply of approximately 800 m2 of Italian-made porcelain tiles.
Offering originality and natural comfort, the pool area has been transformed with the Woods accent tiles from the Dream series, a wall collection inspired by the natural linen fibre seen from a whole new perspective. The backdrop created by the Woods decorative tile allows you to lose yourself in a relaxing natural environment, while guaranteeing all the effectiveness of porcelain stoneware, including its water resistance.
For the changing room area, the Res Art series was chosen, laid in different sizes and alternating the more neutral shades of Talc and Mud with the brighter colours of Pottery.
Fluid lines and attractive designs: the luxury motorhomes of the Belgian STX brand exude a refined mix of elegance and flair. Distinctive for their sporty and dynamic appeal, the interiors of STX vehicles are what really captivate travellers. Inspired by exclusive yachts, every item of decor in these mobile homes has a bright and welcoming Scandinavian feel that will make you feel right at home, wherever you may be.
The strong contrast between the robustness of the exterior and the delicacy of the interiors makes these vehicles authentic luxury homes on wheels, their living spaces filled with leather, carbon fibre, select woods and sumptuous high-end fabrics.
In such an innovative designer setting, Ceramica Fondovalle was brought in to add a touch of glamour to the kitchen area and bathrooms of various STX motorhomes.
The common denominator of this partnership, shared by the various types of vehicles, is the use of marble-effect porcelain stoneware from the Infinito 2.0 collection, applied in various sizes and colours according to the style of the motorhome. In fact, the marble-effect products of the Infinito 2.0 collection boast different textures, criss-crossed by veins of different widths which showcase their natural and precious appearance.Infinito 2.0
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
