One of the industrial sectors in which our Country is still a worldwide leader is ceramics.
The analysts in the business rely on this industry since it managed to turn a time of slump into the opportunity to innovate. Casalgrande Padana stands for an exemplary case in that over the last decade it consolidated its worldwide leadership by achieved the much-sought convergence between manufacturers, professionals, research and academia. A testimony of this effort is the recent work entitled CCCloud, the first Italian effort by Kengo Kuma, resulting from a research study on ceramic materials assigned by Casalgrande to the Department of Architecture of the Universities of Ferrara and Siracusa.
