Sant'Agostino Terre Nuove | Italian Porcelain Tile
Terre Nuove draws inspiration from the centuries-old technique of handmade cotto. Designed for floors and wall coverings, Terre Nuove creates a new, modern aesthetic vision of classic “cotto.” With multiple sizes and rich variation, there are unlimited design options.

3 x 3 & 3 x 3 Caleido
* 3 x 3 & 3 x 3 Caleido are mounted on sheets. Picture shows one possible sheet of Caleido, but each sheet is different. The patterns are mounted randomly, so an individual sheet may include duplications of some patterns and omission of others. Care should be taken during installation to ensure the desired mix of patterns. This may involve rotating sheets or even removing and relocating pieces to attain the proper blend.
The surface bullnose is made from field tile that is cut, ground and reglazed. The edge is only slightly rounded.
Usage & Installation
Terre Nuove is suitable for use on walls, counters and residential to moderate duty commercial floors.
There is a wide range of variation with many different graphics that are mixed and packed randomly. It is important to pull from multiple boxes during installation, rotate pieces and note the placement of the different images in order to get the proper final blend. This applies not just to the field tiles but also to the mosaics - including mixing tiles from different sheets. Maximum offset of 8” (20cm) is recommended on all large format tiles when setting a running bond. Please refer to ANSI requirements for setting large format tiles, ANSI A 108.2 Section 4.3.8.
As noted in the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) the coefficient of friction varies considerably due to facts not under the control of entities such as the manufacturers and distributors. These factors include, but are not limited to, contaminants, slope of terrain, drainage conditions, adjacent surfaces, etc. Suitability for any installation can only be determined by a site examination of all conditions that could affect the slip resistance of the tile being installed. Continual cleaning and maintenance must be performed once the tile has been installed. For more information see our current handout Americans with Disabilities Act and Slip Resistance of Tile.
