History of Ceramic in Vietri
The art of ceramic dates back to the V century B. C. at the time of Etrurians. In the Middle Ages the ceramic production is a source of prosperity in the numerous pottery centers around Salerno. In the 1700s the production of the “RIGGIOLE” floor tiles increased considerably and these were traded in the whole Mediterranean Basin, different from the Neapolitan tiles for their lighter colors.
The craft production of ceramics in Vietri sees craftsmen using techniques handed down over the centuries. The decoration is composed by hand using figures and patterns that reflect the Mediterranean culture and way of life. The quality of this craftsmanship makes each article produced, a unique Work of Art.
Today the production of ceramic continues in small and large workshops in which artists and craftsmen work on their potter’s lathes as a family tradition, embellishing with bright colors the stunning villages in the AMALFI COAST, from CETARA to MAIORI and AMALFI.
