Tagina was founded in 1973 in Gualdo Tadino, Umbria, taking its name from the town’s former toponym as homage to the strong tradition in the craftsmanship of ceramics and hand-decorated metal shown by the town and area since the Renaissance. Since its beginning, the company’s clear identity and originality of production has enabled it to establish itself as one of the leading companies in Italy and abroad, through its innovative products and organisation. In 1983, the company entered into an unprecedented long-term business arrangement and exclusive worldwide license agreement with designer Laura Biagiotti. During those years, the company successfully introduced the 12-mm-thick 41×41 cm size, offering a size and thickness that was totally new at the time. In 1991, Tagina launched another an innovative product, the “Terre cotte dell’Umbria”, which won over the international market, setting trends in taste and fashion for years to come through its new concept of finely aged, technologically advanced ceramic flooring.
Today, Tagina boasts a vast range of contemporary products, which extends from the more traditional 60×60 or 60×120 cm sizes to the large 160×320 slabs available in thickness of 6 mm, 12 mm, and 20 mm, ideal for the creation of countertops and kitchen tops. It also offers a wide range of outdoor products, coordinated with those for indoor use, and a collection of ultra-thick slabs measuring 30 mm or more, which include the 90×90, 120×120, and larger versions.
More than 70% of Tagina’s products are exported to the most important foreign markets, making it a worldwide ambassador for the excellence and attention to detail typical of products made in Italy.
At the end of 2020, Tagina S.p.A. was acquired by the DAFIN Group, a holding company owned by the D’Agostino family, which has been operating in the construction industry for over 60 years. Former owner of LA FABBRICA S.p.A. (1994-2017), the DAFIN Group is now a leader – with IBL S.p.A. – in the production of terracotta bricks for masonry and facing.
