UM CANUDO - QUEEN IN ITS SEGMENT
This month we turn the spotlight on the Casa da Ribeira project. This cultural venue, evocative of cultural experiences and memories of the city of Viseu, is housed in a former factory. The presence of the old mills from the River Paiva and the olive press remind us of the work of the washerwomen who coloured and dried their clothes by the mill dam. The Casa also evokes the presence of the boats in the Ribeira, which marked the life of the river and the community. UM Canudo tiles were used in the rehabilitation work of the Casa da Ribeira. The natural red shade was used for the roof of this noble building. As a queen in its segment, the UM Canudo tile has been used in several buildings that aspire to aesthetic appreciation, distinction, refinement and a unique cromia.
