Piacenza: The boldness of simplicity

The Piacenza pergola is not afraid to make a statement. Its deceptively stark lines and clean angles give it a sharp, modern beauty. But the true boldness of the Piacenza design lies in its (patented) details.

The word piacenza comes from the Latin word placere -- to please. The city of Piacenza in northern Italy is often translated as a pleasant home, and the Piacenza patio system lives up to its name. This pergola can be either freestanding or, alternatively, mounted to a wall. This creates a open area, large enough for outdoor dining or lounging, yet fully protected with the optional glass slide panels.

The Piacenza unites beauty and strength into a single patio system . Each member of the RetractableAwnings.com patio cover line has its own unique design signature. For the Piacenza, this design lies in the flatness and strength of its frame. Unlike many cover systems, the Piacenza does not require an angle to the awning to provide runoff; the awning is perfectly flat, while hidden, integrated guttering and drainpipes provide all the necessary control for precipitation. Its patented tilted drain system prevents evaporation within the frame, which helps preserve the integrity of the frame. It has been tested and certified in downpours of 369mm per hour -- that's over 14.5 inches.

The Piacenza comes with two different varieties of sliding glass doors, both of which glide with a whisper-soft quietness:

  • Aluminum-framed glass panels, which add a sense of structure and enclosure that truly makes the pergola feel like its own room

  • Glass-only panels, which give an open, airy feeling despite sealing securely when closed

Both types of panels are tested for water-tightness and wind resistance, meaning that the Piacenza pergola can be a truly protected and comfortable space in almost any weather.

A single Piacenza unit has a maximum size of roughly 18x23 feet, but as many as four units can be combined together, creating truly massive, enclosed spaces. These can be joined at either side. It is even possible to join two units together in a kind of L. This creates an unparalleled flexibility in the size and spaces that you can create, whether it’s adding outdooring seating and dining or creating cabanas along the beach.
