Portico is a porch that leads directly to entry into the building. In the times of ancient Greece Portico "porches" or gallery entrances with columns were very popular. This series of tile from Cerdomus factory has a real Italian character of the surfaces that are rustic, resembling the natural cotto. The colors of Portico tile bear the names of Italian town and sights with poetic names of San Luca, Santo Stefano, San Vitale, San Felice. Monolithic ceramic steps of Portico series made this collection popular for the design of entrance areas of modern suburban villas. The "herringbone" decorative element sets the rhythm and adds special features, making you think of the traditional Italian coziness of paved streets and squares of cities and especially towns. Portico background tiles look like they’re filled with the sun, are soaked with it, some are even sun-faded; and now the color “travels” around the tiles.
