The first series of the Geometry Line is the Circle. The circle could only be the first geometric figure of the Geometry Line because it represents – more than the other geometric figures related to it – perfection, as the “beginning” of things. But the Circle seen as “zero”, as the numerical beginning is also the symbol of everything, of the emptyness, of the universe, of the beginning of a series. Compared to the other ones, this perfect figure in terms of symbolism and meaning has the property of replicating itself without losing its role of individual and recognisable element, thanks also to the use of colour. This double characteristic of being both an element in its own and part of a “whole” makes it possible to decline languages and uses of ceramic tiles with multiple compositional expressions. The Tonalite circle becomes flexible for any purpose or use of decoration.
