High-quality surfaces, furnishings and services are combined with the typical shades of local colours, enriching the atmosphere of southern Italy

Perla Saracena, a luxury resort in Apulia overlooking the Torre Pali coast, is the setting for six small villas and three suites with a panoramic penthouse designed by the Effkey architecture firm. Nestled in the Salento landscape, these housing solutions are inspired by the rural charm of the local farmers’ “pajare” (stone huts), offering small pearls of interior design enveloped by technological comfort.

Light and bright rooms characterize these structures, in which water blade showers that provide a cervical massage, hand-painted Kerlite trompe-l'oeil panels and antibacterial floors coexist with dry stone walls, Mediterranean wood, local vegetation and natural stone.

Product used

Once again, the Modena-based company demonstrates its ability to engage with the architectural sector, offering exclusivity and luxury with projects that successfully strengthen its prestigious position, which it has boasted for over 25 years. The two ton-sur-ton shades in the Cement Project collection, chosen for the coverings used in the suites' bathrooms, convey a cohesive and contemporary effect in the warm, lively Salento atmosphere that evokes local traditions.

Cem evokes manually levelled concrete floors and is characterized by infinite shades of grey and its original glossy/matt reflection when exposed to light, which gives the space a bold style. The collections of Cotto d’Este, in the context of the enchanting Perla Saracena resort, accentuate the contrast between modernity and tradition, nature and urban style, while maintaining harmonious continuity with the outdoor environment.

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.
