Roberto Forte, where the whole process of ceramic brick manufacturing was demonstrated: from handling of the raw material to the actual brick fabrication; the tests laboratory with various experiments in shapes, sizes, textures, colours; material behaviour and resistance tests of all kinds of brick that the factory produces.
