The pottery in Montelupo
The story of pottery from Montelupo
The maiolica from Montelupo had its maximum splendor between 1450 and 1530, when the maiolica was exported in the Mediterranean area and in Europe. The pottery decorations became rich and elaborated, as well as unique.
But between 19th and 20th centuries Montelupo got back on track and started again the production of high quality pottery. Nowadays the city of Montelupo is one of the major pottery center in Italy and the handmade pottery artworks made here are exported all around the world.
