Nearly razed to the ground by a devastating earthquake in 2012, Villa La Personala, owned by the Counts Personali-Ferri, underwent extensive restoration: the whole complex of buildings, built over the centuries around an ancient tower dating back to 1100, was completely renovated.
Now a multipurpose center and luxury relais, it is thriving again and has preserved its old-world charm and appeal while offering modern comforts. With its unusual blend of ancient and modern, the FMG porcelain stoneware materials add to the building’s historic appeal: the fascinating Venetian seminato flooring of the full-body Rialto collection, the eternal beauty of stone in MaxFine CityStone, and the timeless elegance of the MaxFine Calacatta and MaxFine Travertino marbles are all combined to create a seamless flow of spaces. FMG’s technical ceramic surfaces were chosen for this complex and ambitious project not only for their aesthetics, which respect the historical character of the building, but also because they offer excellent performance in terms of resistance, reliability, and durability.
The restoration and reconstruction project for this villa, which fully respected its original architecture and is in harmony with its surroundings, was awarded a certificate of merit in the international FICLU (Italian Federation of UNESCO Clubs) competition “La Fabbrica nel Paesaggio”, promoted by UNESCO in 2021.
