how long are those brick? or maybe how long are those bricks?

Is it a typically italian or are they common all over Europe? We have a "Norman" brick which I was told was a more european brick and it's 2 1/4" x 11 1/2" or maybe the metric equivalent

I knew you could answer that
thank you

This job i will do as if it was veneer, thinset toothed an the concrete, and the back of the brick, then every 2ft H. some rebar will be drilled into wall for added support.
the anti seismic here is of the highest category.
