HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

To anyone who is passionate about pottery or just curious, we offer a guided tour inside and outside our furnace, that will last about 30-40 minutes. During the visit, we will explain and show, whenever possible, all stages of production of a handmade pottery. The visit will begin on the outside, we will show you how and where the soil is taken to be processed and how it is cooked before being sold.
We will unveil the secrets of an ancient art, the working techniques, from the most common to the most ancient and challenging.
After this visit, the firm belief that "some water, some soil, and that's it" will disappear forever, and you will understand that in a single terracotta artifact there is the story of a man.

SOME TIPS

We suggest you to wear casual or sporty clothes, we don't want you to get dirty with some dust!
