La Fornace del Bucchero

The building that houses the workshop is charming itself: a small church dating back to 1188, dedicated to St. Nicolò, which was deconsecrated in 1825. Marisa Brancaleoni began creating highly artistic objects by specializing in the reproduction of the Etruscan bucchero. Her son, Francesco Morelli, followed in her footsteps and carries on this ceramic-making technique which was perfected by the Etruscans 2,500 years ago. Pieces and objects of traditional and artistic craftsmanship are created in the old furnace.
