The fresco is certainly prevalent in Italy where the
beautiful, detailed plaster artwork holds such a significant importance
in the country¡¯s political, religious and artistic history. The classic
Italian frescos, on display in Verona, Rome, Florence and Venice,
decorate family villas and chapels, adding a vintage exquisiteness to
the historical European country.
Reflecting the craquelure look present on the aged
Italian frescos, world-wide tile production and design firm
Mediterranea has created a unique, new concept in porcelain tile with
¡°Affresco.¡± Using the 17th century artistic Masters¡¯ intricate
technique of shading and color contrast as inspiration, Mediterranea
offers a revolutionary look with ¡°Affresco¡± porcelain tile.
The ¡°Affresco¡± collection, glazed porcelain that¡¯s
ideal for commercial and residential use, pays tribute to the Italian
fresco artwork through the series¡¯ exclusive, original hues found in
the frescos of Venice (beige), Florence (grey), Verona (gold) and Rome
¡°¡¯Affresco¡¯ is one of Mediterranea¡¯s most original
series. Its collection completely emulates a 17th century fresco. With
a timeless aged and worn look, ¡®Affresco¡¯ is a completely original
floor and wall option for any interior. Just as the Italian frescos
have adorned walls and ceilings for centuries, the Mediterranea
¡®Affresco¡¯ collection will last through the years, offering an elegant,
ageless d¨¦cor,¡± said Mediterranea General Manager, Paul Young.
Produced in the United States, ¡°Affresco¡± is readily
available to customers in North America. The collection is presented in
sizes of 13¡± X 13¡±, 20¡± X 20¡±, 10¡± X 20¡±, 6 1/2¡± X 6 1/2¡±, 3¡± X 13¡± cut
bullnoses, 4¡± X 20¡± cut bullnoses and 2¡± X 2¡± mosaics mesh-mounted on
