Through the analysis of the production data of Italian ceramic tiles, written by Assopiastrelle, is evident that 2001 has been the worst year of the last quinquennium. In this setting, the production of porcelain stoneware goes to the apposite direction; in fact, it has increased its production and since 1999 has passed the one of fast firing (monocottura). Porcelain stoneware success is related to the technological evolution of the processing, that has allowed aesthetical improvement and better mechanical properties of the final fired product. At present, in Italy, the research is engaging in the design of customized tile of high quality, that is difficult to be reproduced and that presents a new aesthetical aspect. The aim of the following article is to summarize the most important innovations in terms of processing and product in the field of porcelain stoneware in the last year.
