The ceramic market has been in good shape for several months on the various markets, thanks to the characteristics of healthiness, hygiene and environmental sustainability intrinsic to our materials and to a growing attention to housing quality , that our products are able to give to the home and to other environments frequented. As we have represented to the exponents of national and territorial institutions who have paid us considerable attention with their visit to the fair, this recovery cannot be compromised by the devastating levels achieved by energy costs, which required and urgent action is needed at EU level “.
