Èvviva is the name of a new format created by Andrea Muccioli and Franco Aliberti: a 0 km restaurant, bar/espresso bar and pastry shop inspired by an important basic philosophy"zero waste".
Opened in the old laundry of the Grand Hotel in Riccione, the premises designed by architect Luca Tausani Ferrini reflect Ristorante Èvviva’s ethical philosophy. The thirties style interiors were restored and tables and chairs were built out of reclaimed materials.
The countertop in the restaurant, which plays a key role in the restaurant concept, is made out of Active ceramic tiles by FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti.
ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™, an innovative process perfected by the Fiandre Group, combines the aesthetic qualities of big ceramic tiles with the ability to play an active role fighting pollution and bacteria. These features mean that diners at Ristorante Èvviva will be able to eat their food directly off the Active porcelain tiles of the counter.
The oxidation process induced by photocatalysis allows Active to eliminate 99.99% of bacteria by an entirely natural method.
The certifications obtained and the numerous laboratory tests performed on some of the most hazardous bacteria for human health such as Staphylococcus Aureus, Klebsiella Pneumoniae and Escherichia Coli demonstrate that Active ceramic destroys bacteria that come into contact with its surface.
