Città, a stone mosaic, shown in polished Calacatta


Q: I love it! But what’s up with the accent over the a? How do I say it?
A: Città’s pronunciation is similar to the feline “cheetah,” but with a greater emphasis on the last consonant, like “chi-tah”. The word means “city” in Italian and was named as an ode to the urban and natural lanscapes of the country and its native Calacatta stone.

Q: What are Città’s product specifications?
A: Each piece is 9 13/16 x 21 3/4 (or, 1.47 ft) and features a random, modular repeat

Q: What does each piece cost?
A: Wholesale price per piece: $117.60. Price per square ft: $80.

Q: What does each piece weigh?
A: 15 lb

Q: What does each piece (template and repeat) look like?
Citta 9 x 21 template

Q: Will my showroom receive a sample as part of our partnership with New Ravenna?
A. Yes! Your showroom will receive a 12×12 concept board this month. A sample is below.
Citta 12x12 in frame

Q: What would a 19×19 concept board look like? And what does it cost?
A. Our 19×19 Città concept boards are discounted for Perennial Program members from $300 to $150 each for a limited time. Here’s a sample:
Citta 19x19 in frame

Q: I love the design, but my clients will need to see more of the repeat to make the greatest impact.
A: We completely agree! We’re offering showroom installations over 20 sq ft exclusively to Perennial Program members at 40% off wholesale. We’re happy to share our hi-res photos of the design if you’re not ready for an installation and 19×19 concept boards are available for purchase. Please contact Meredith Dwyer-Lewis at mdlewis@newravenna.com or 757-695-1442 for more information about installations and larger concept boards or complete an order form by clicking “upgrade” below.


Q: What colors are available?
A: Currently, only Calacatta.

Q: What is the leadtime after sale?
A: Città is in stock now in Virginia and is ready to ship in 48 hours.

Q: Where do you recommend Città to be used?
A: Città is perfect for commercial applications (especially hospitality) but will also make a big impact in residential spaces. It’s only suitable for walls, but the pattern can be repeated vertically or horizontally in wet or dry areas.

Q: What is the pattern mounted on?
A: Each template is mesh mounted.

Q: I’ve never seen anything like this! Exactly how unique is this design?
A: New Ravenna has exclusive rights to Città’s design. We guarantee you won’t find anything similar from anyone else. As the demand for marble slab grows and becomes more expensive, this design will hold its value for decades.
