Traditional Campania Craftsmanship

Porcelain from Capodimonte - The porcelain made in Capodimonte is among the best examples of artistic craftsmanship representing Neapolitan culture and history all over the world. Capodimonte porcelain is linked to the history of the Borbone dynasty that founded the Royal Factory of Capodimonte to compete with the porcelain production from the rest of the world. The pieces realized by Made in Edit and I Borbone di Capodimonte are a modern reinterpretation of the ancient techniques used by the master artisans and represent an important example of this long tradition.

Colorful Ceramics from Costiera Amalfitana - ​Vietri Sul Mare is a center of ancient Etruscan origins, where its tradition of artistic craftsmanship was expressed in the production of tiles. The glossy terracotta was decorated with motifs inspired by the pastoral world and characterized by warm colors. Here, Francesco De Maio, Ceramica Pinto and Ma.Vi. carry on this precious tradition and give life to stunning ceramic artworks.
