Terracotta thresholds made with ancient techniques

Many years ago the ancient artisans created the bricks mixing water and clay and baking them in furnaces, giving rise to artifacts with different colors and shapes. Even the terracotta thresholds are beautiful for their color ranging, that goes from the typical straw-yellow to the reddish. Their prestige is reminiscent of Umbrian aristocratic palaces of the XII century.
Enrico Palmucci’s Company covers all kind of living environment with terracotta bricks through a craftsmanship that has been handed down from generation to generation. The skilled hands of the craftsmen make squares, lozenges, strips, special formats and thresholds for windows and with
meticulous skills that only men who preserve old values have.
The Umbrian terracotta is, by definition, the Italian best material because it directly derives from the quarries in the region and in particular in that corner of Umbria, in Castel Viscardo, where the Palmucci Company works with passion and commitment, making use of the valuable collaboration of architects and technicians who study and carefully planning the designs and shapes of coatings and thresholds.
