Venetian Terrazzo History

The Artistic Venetian Terrazzo floor finds its historical origins in the floor decorations in Greece. In later times the Romans used it to create the splendid mosaic floors.

Passed down for centuries, it was welcomed and perfected by the workers of the communities of Friuli and Veneto.

The Venetian Terrazzo Flooring reached its maximum development and splendor in the city of Venice (hence the origin of the name), where in 1586 the “Arte dei Terrazzieri” arose, the first Confraternity to draw up its own statute regulating the construction methodologies.

Originally it consisted of fragments of terracotta mixed with lime, then pieces of marble were inserted to make it more aesthetically appreciable and also resistant to time.

This floor has undergone numerous and continuous evolutions over the centuries, adapting to the tastes of each era.

From Venice it has been exported all over the world, testifying even today, with its presence in the most important palaces, the superior quality of an artifact, still witnessing Veneto today.

Today the Venetian Terrazzo floor is a work of art, part of ancient and modern architecture and writes the contemporary history of our days.
