KERAMA MARAZZI’s new collection, like all the previous ones, is

designed and manufactured in cooperation with Russian and Italian de-

signers and artists, including the outstanding Italian ceramics artist

Franco Сalise.

The craftsman’s works that have become the possession of private

collections and interiors and have been manifested in multiple public

special charm and unique local flavor to the new collection in signor Сa-

lise’s original and talented interpretation.
