Castelli

Castelli is a town famous for its ceramics. It is home to the Majolica style of pottery that was hugely popular in Europe from the 16th to 18th centuries. Its defining characteristic is the tin glaze that gives these ceramics a brilliant white, opaque surface to paint on.  The paints themselves are applied as metallic oxides onto the unfired glaze and which absorbs the pigments like a fresco and preserves their intensity. You’ll see a wide range of pottery stores in town selling everything from wine carafes to necklaces, if you are lucky you’ll also be able to see a few of the shop keepers painting their wares.
