What is cocciopesto

This type of paving has its roots in ancient Rome, where it was used to pave public spaces, thermal baths and patrician residences. The name ‘cocciopesto’ comes from the Latin word ‘coccum,’ meaning brick shards, and ‘pistare,’ meaning to pound. This name is a direct reference to the production process of cocciopesto, which involves grinding and mixing ground brick with the binder.

Cocciopesto is a form of flooring that has its roots in history and is still a popular solution in interior design today. This ancient art, a modern evolution of the ancient pastel, has been adapted to meet contemporary needs.
