140 years of Cooperativa Ceramica d'Imola

In 1874 Italy’s oldest production and worker’s cooperative opened the doors of the tableware and majolica factory.
This marked the beginning of a journey exploring the potential of ceramic creativity. Innovation has been the driving force of Cooperativa Ceramica d'Imola through the decades, influencing its production choices. The core business quickly focused on the creation of tiles for floors and facings.
This focus is still at the heart of the Group’s activities in the new century, with prestigious artistic collaborations and innovative aesthetics and technologies.

Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola today still strikes a perfect balance between innovation and tradition. A stylistic characteristic echoed by the image of the bee. The laborious bee is a synonym of unity: the silent bee that is capable of great things and the bee with the invisible trails that become creative ideas.

140 years have passed since the first ovens transformed clay into unique pieces.
The bee’s journey has achieved an important milestone today, marked with a special trademark. A symbol that encapsulates a story: the story of a cooperative that has established its Made in Italy production as the archetype of beauty and quality.
