Cersaie, the annual tile show in Bologna, Italy, offers much to smile about. This year, the widest grin came from seeing Puntini, a Ceramica Francesco De Maio collection and one of the last works by Milanese architect Alessandro Mendini, who died last year. The tiles are hand-painted in clear, bright glaze colors in a choice of eight patterns inspired by the playful ceramics found in Vietri sul Mare, a small town on the Amalfi Coast. Each square is almost 8 inches and less than ½ inch thick. Through Artemest.
