Pratigliolmi is proposing a roof tile and a bent tile produced with the drawing machine. Beauty, duration, frost-proofing, insulating properties and ease of laying: it is rare to find theses features all together in roofing today. As is known, the Romana Copertura is laid without either grouting or cement.
In fact, its stability is guaranteed by the weight of each single tile and the way in which the roofing interconnects. One thing is certain, the roof represents the most important element of a house and still today the Romana roofing is the most valid and safest answer, offering great aesthetic value as well. Pratigliolmi produces three types: the famous classical Florentine red, a clashing pink, and an antiqued type which is extremely beautiful.
The roof is the most visible tile element in construction visible outside an urban environement. The Roman roofing, based on Etruscan civilkization, is the most antique fictile roof and the most beautiful. The Pratigliolmi factory manufactures it in four versions: “Rosso” – red, classic. This is the characteristic colour of florentine roofs and of many Tuscan towns. “Rosa Antico”, light pink faded colour, is the colour of Maremma amd Siena areas. “Invecchiato”, is a special treatment which age the tiles and is available in two versions: The first is in a mossy green colour, with lighter and yellow effects. The second: the newest “Antica Pieve” is a yellow- pink shaded colour, with a very natural effect. A complete range which represents a major contribution to the architectural tradition of quality.
