The City of Ceramics

Montelupo Fiorentino, as the name itself suggests, is a town near Florence with a history closely linked to the production of ceramics.

It was here in the 15th century that the items were made that graced the homes and tables of Florence's leading families: the Medici, Strozzi, Machiavelli, Canigiani and Frescobaldi. The tradition has continued through the ages right down to the present day, both in local industries and with events and projects associating ceramics with contemporary art.
