ImolaCeramica is a Cooperativa Ceramica d'Imola brand that designs and manufactures a wide range of floor and wall tiles which reflect and anticipate the latest trends in the world of architecture and interior design.
With its ceramics for residential contexts and major, modern building works and its attractive, but practical solutions, ImolaCeramica can meet any and every style requirement by enveloping space with classic, rustic, traditional or modern tactile styles.
These tiles brim with creativity and constantly reinterpret that special Made in Italy sensitivity which succeeds in combining quality and innovation. The collections are constantly expanded too, in order to satisfy both a sense of family cosiness, and the flair of the most up-to-date designers and design studios.
Different ideas and identities take shape and come to life in a single brand: ImolaCeramica.
140 years have gone by since our first kilns began transforming clay into unique items. A bee symbolises this creative journey. Today, Imola Ceramica is the perfect balance of innovation and tradition, just as it has always been.
ImolaCeramica’s history is firmly bound to that of Cooperativa Ceramica d'Imola, the cooperative founded in 1874 when Giuseppe Bucci handed over his tableware and majolica factory to his workers. This is how Italy’s oldest Production and Employment Cooperative was created and why it has always been driven by a passionate thirst for progress.
It is this insistence on looking to the future that encouraged the company, in 1913, to focus on the production of floor and wall tiles and achieve an ideal combination of style and technology.
This perfect balance is encapsulated in the ImolaCeramica brand and symbolized by its worker bee logo.
A bee that draws Made in Italy tactile trajectories to create the ultimate archetype of beauty and quality.
Over 3000 square metres of ceramic production exhibited in a unique and extremely stylish example of post-industrial architecture.
In the spacious and beautifully-organised ImolaCeramica showroom, the visitor can admire the stratified transformation and renovations that have changed this fascinating eighteenth-century glass-works into a highly contemporary space.
A stroll through its various rooms means taking a journey through time, crossing decades and historical periods to enjoy a firsthand experience of tactile creativity in all its various formats.
Showroom opening times:
From Monday to Saturday: 10:00 - 13:00 / 15:10 - 19:00.
Quality and environment
For ImolaCeramica, technological innovation cannot be separated from eco-sustainability. This conviction has led to the brand perfecting a new type of ceramic production that focuses on humanity and the environment as the fundamental and inseparable combination on which all its industrial and productive processes are founded.
Green attitudes and dynamics have been an important part of Cooperativa Ceramica d'Imola corporate policies since 1998 when the Group was awarded its first standard certification.
Since then, numerous environmentally friendly initiatives have been launched.
Today, 98% of the Group’s industrial scrap is recycled.
Every day over 11 tonnes of petroleum are saved, and energy self-production now reaches levels of up to 85% thanks to a highly efficient Company Environmental Management System.
Ceramics that limit the use of natural resources by including scrap are products that respect humanity and the environment. And look to the future too.

ImolaCeramica has always invested in research and development and it is constantly on the lookout for new technology, inspiration and ground-breaking solutions.
The team that maps the latest ceramic trends has developed a consolidated level of know-how that allows it to anticipate and guide trends and innovations, and react promptly to stimuli from the world of design and architecture, and a host of other sectors too.
We experiment with every dimension of ceramic products: texture, materials, applications, tactile inserts, forms and decorations.
Our research covers areas that are just as complex and widespread. This involves visits to all the major international trade fairs, with a particular focus on Cersaie, and continues with trend-spotting trips to the principal European capitals and other style centres.
The result is a fierce drive towards innovation, an insistence on diversification to meet the needs of individual markets, and a century-old tradition that stimulates a highly creative form of interaction between past and future.
