The kiln, with an adjoining quarry, is one of the oldest and largest in the area, actually dating back to 1300. Since 1919 it has been owned by the Poggi family, and from producing bricks, tiles, bowls, and urns for oil, it has expanded rapidly to all forms of garden furnishings. Today, customers can buy terracotta flooring, garden furnishings, and vases of all shapes. Besides the classic line, Poggi Ugo has a complete line of articles of contemporary forms, the Design Collection, and always goes beyond the traditional items in terracotta by also working in lava grey. All of the crafting is done strictly by hand and the workshop produces pieces that are custom-made or specially designed.
