Basaltina® - Visit us in the Italian Stone Pavilion!
Basaltina Srl is a 100% Italian company founded by Giuseppe Tecchi in 1925. The quarry situated in Bagnoregio, in the heart of Italy, is one of the most important in the country. Here, we extract and work a natural lava stone, used since Roman times, and actually marketed worlwide with the registred trademark Basaltina®.
As always, it is the people that make a difference in this expansive worksite: more than 70 employees, who operate in full compliance with environmental regulations, work hard to enhance this unique product and to successfully export it all over the world.
Our brand Basaltina® is synonymous of Made in Italy excellence, combining craftsmanship and industrial refinement. The stone is appreciated for the colour, the minimal look and its versatility that makes it simple but elegant. Internationally renowned architects and designers sign-off their projects using the products know by the brand Basaltina®, including masterpieces such as: Aurora Place Apartments by Renzo Piano, Asian Art Museum by Gae Aulenti, Winspear Opera House by Norman Foster, Sagrada Familia, Doha Hamad International Airport and the three Samsung skyscrapers in Seoul.
The stone comes in two different types: Classico and Selcino.
Basaltina® type Classico features unmistakable horizontal stratification, and is the symbol of elegance, Basaltina® type Selcino has random porosity, thus epitomizes the sleek minimalism of the modern world. Both types are sold in slabs and cut-to-size/ tiles with different sizes and finishes.
The trademark Basaltina®, perfect for interior and exterior applications, enhances and makes unique every different surface.
Basaltina Srl has obtained national and international certifications on its products that prove its primary physical-mechanical features: resistance to both extremely high and extremely low temperatures and resistance to both compression and abrasion.
Its versatility makes it suitable for the most disparate applications and types of workmanship. Furthermore, its distinctive grey colour perfectly matches perfectly with other materials.
