Castelli, the ceramic capital of Abruzzo

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Castelli, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is considered the capital of decorative pottery in Abruzzo, thanks to a tradition dating back to the Renaissance.

It was the good workmanship of the majolica, the vibrant decorations, but also the affordability of the products, due to innovative production systems, that made Castelli one of the most appreciated centers for this art by European nobility.

These brightly colored hand-painted pieces are famous for their characteristic “pentachrome,” a palette of five colors: yellow, green, blue, orange and brown.

Castelli, located within the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, offers a perfect blend of culture and nature where you can create your own masterpiece.

All you have to do is join one of Abruzzo’s cultural and artistic tours to enjoy this exciting experience.
