the art of ceramics
The pottery is shaped by hand, then painted meticulously, paying scrupulous attention to the details, colour and shape of every single piece.
We are in Vietri sul Mare, overlooking the gulf, surrounded by the colours that only the Amalfi Coast can offer.
One of the most prestigious pottery workshops in Italy is located here, just outside the city centre, and it has been producing ceramics since 1947, with a family tradition dating back four generations.
Exclusive handmade pottery, each item a unique object of inestimable artistic value.
Ceramica Artistica Solimene is run by the ten children of the company’s founder, Vincenzo Solimene, led by Pierfrancesco, whose passion for decorative art gives life to real works of art.
The pottery is shaped by hand, then painted meticulously, paying scrupulous attention to the details, colour and shape of every single piece. The end result is a jewel, a unique piece of art.
Solimene produces ceramic crockery and furniture, but also flooring, wall tiles and elements for churches and domes.
Pierfrancesco has designed a special line for Italia Bellissima: tiny little fish painted in shades of blue and white, which fill the mind with images of sunny summer afternoons in Amalfi, the light, cooling breeze, the scent of the sea air and lemons, and, above all, old-fashioned tables, where the best plates were valuable and this made the food served on them valuable too; with majolica items hanging on the terrace and the voices of diners floating down the streets and livening up the evening. A collection of ceramics, bright colours and pure beauty.
