During his time building houses, Juan Rossi learned the importance of materials. They must be strong, but also beautiful. Through a seemingly infinite search, he eventually found the perfect union in hydraulic tiles, thanks to their incredible durability and aesthetic qualities.

For over ten years, he has been teaching classes on how to use cement, specifically for limestone and hydraulic tiles, and how to employ different tiles in different spaces. His work can be discovered on Instagram, as well as through his own courses and products.
