Who we are
Cielo: “The Ceramic Workshop”
"I was driven to rediscover and appreciate our roots — the roots of Antonio Coramusi, who was a master craftsman, and in the early 20th century he was the first to make ceramic sanitary fixtures in Civita Castellana. Our company is what I like to call a Made-in-Italy workshop. We draw on dedicated stylistic exploration and an innovative approach to selecting materials and forms. Our products stand out for their superior craftsmanship, strictly made in Italy and defined by a deep connection to the values of craftsmanship, putting product quality and design at the absolute center of attention."
Alessio Coramusi, Ceramica Cielo CEO
History and the Company
Cielo is based in the Civita Castellana district, an Etruscan land of age-old artistic traditions, and a major center of ceramic art until the mid-20th century. It was then, at the start of the 20th century, that a master craftsman named Antonio Coramusi was the first to start the production of ceramic sanitary fixtures. It is from this land and these noble origins that Cielo came to be a "Made-in-Italy workshop," drawing on dedicated stylistic exploration and an innovative approach to selecting materials and forms to create exclusive collections of sanitary fixtures, washbasins, shower trays, bathtubs and urinals that have dramatically shifted how ceramic bathroom furnishings are conceived. Cielo has carried forward its groundbreaking approach by bringing ceramic beyond the bounds of the known, offering the market absolutely new shapes, sizes, thicknesses, surfaces, and colors. Unique collections express the full breadth of its extraordinary skill at working the material joined with contemporary, innovative design. Its collections are the result of a tailor-made approach, closely bound with the values of craftsmanship and total product quality — always the center of its research.
Going against the industrial approach of recent decades, Cielo chose to return focus to the "culture of the handmade," a concept decimated in this era's obsession with hourly costs. Its goal was to reverse the logic of modern production processes and forge a new industrial model, far from traditional systems and extreme mechanization. Cielo prefers to focus on the dignity of people, who once again are the master artisans of their work and whose meticulous professionalism lets them "tame" ceramic and create products of peerless design, beauty, and quality.
Cielo, a voice for artisanal values, puts people at the center of its company plan, aspiring to create a genuine Made-in-Italy Renaissance "workshop", whose ethos is based on nature and respect for it as a source of inspiration. The foundation of each collection is a strategy based on the value of the handmade in Italy, aptly summed up in its tag line "Cielo handmade in Italy," perfectly expressing a manufacturing tradition equipped to evolve in its encounter with innovative technology and design.
