Piazza Diaz in the centre of Milan: here you can enjoy all the city’s charm from a smart, sophisticated and gourmet location. Since 2018, Iginio Massari Patisserie, established by the master pastry chef of the same name, has been a Milanese hotspot. Designed by Stramigioli Associati, the shop is a gallery of culinary artworks.

To achieve this goal, the architects focused on discreet, high-quality and elegant materials that capture the light coming in from the shop windows, make the sweets and delicacies on display more striking and create a fresh and vibrant atmosphere.

Product used

Cotto d’Este covered the focal point of this space – the eye-catching counter – with Kerlite 5 plus Exedra Calacatta Silk in the 50X100 cm format. Anyone who approaches the counter and places their hands on it will feel the distinctive silk effect, the result of a special mix of precious minerals applied on the surface. The exquisite marble effect, on the other hand, is guaranteed by the Calacatta colour, a white shade with delicate veins.

The false ceiling and the walls are covered with Kerlite 5plus Materica Bianco in the 50X100 cm format, which results in a highly stylish space with a distinctly personal touch. Both collections in the store are part of the Protect line, which offers antibacterial surfaces with superior performance, allowing you to use the space in a safe and healthy way. Partly thanks to the Cotto d’Este surfaces, a visit to Iginio Massari Patisserie becomes a sensory experience.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
