Umbrian ceramics

Italy is famous for ceramics. The most well-known ceramics are probably those from Vietri sul Mare on the Amalfi Coast, Tuscany, Caltagirone in Sicily, Deruta in Umbria, and of course Faenza. The photo below is of some Umbrian ceramics that my husband took during a trip to the Umbrian town of Gubbio.

Where to buy and paint Umbrian ceramics

For travelers to Umbria who are interested in learning about or purchasing ceramics, visit the town of Deruta, which is is just south of Perugia. You can buy ceramics or paint your own, and they do ship


More about the photo….
I’ve written in the past that paying attention to detail in Italy adds depth to any trip. A traveler walking by quickly may notice that the ceramics look a little different from those in other parts of Italy. But the traveler who spends more time looking will notice something unexpected. Do you see what?
