Potters and Artists

Vasanello’s tradition for ceramics has continued uninterrupted since Roman times. During the Renaissance, the potters of Vasanello were forbidden to export their art. Halfway through the twentieth century, the tradition took on a new life, when a workshop for artistic ceramics was installed in the castle’s stables. Artists such as Mazzacurati, Spadini, Del Drago and the architect Buzzi were involved in setting up the venture, the results of which were exported as far away as the United States and Japan.
