A vocation for design and contemporary decor combined with the recovery of the motifs of the Byzantines, Spaniards and Arabs: these are the ceramics of Giacomo Cusumano, who decorates and crafts his pieces by hand, using traditional techniques. His speciality is his ability to paint majolica, treating the enamel as if it were a canvas.

Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm and from 3 pm to 7 pm
