Palagio Engineering


Palagio Engineering as a society devoted to the production and enginering of terracotta ventilated walls. At the beginning of the seventies the production of terracotta extruded elements started at two important furnaces in the cotto Imprunetino area of tuscany. VivaTerra is the new name of the production of Terracotta Imprunetina. It inherited its experience and traditions from the historical Il Ferrone and outstanding Il Palagio.

The sector is in continuous expansion since the first projects realized at the beginning of the nineties. To our credit we have completed hundreds of projects in different climates both in the European community and the rest of the world. The results have always been much appreciated.
