The art of ceramic

Ceramic craftsmanship has always been one of the driving elements of the Vietri economy. The most ancient written testimony dates back to the century.

The favorable position of Vietri sul Mare within the Tyrrhenian trade, the proximity of the factories to the beach, the gravitational center of the local economy, the natural water supply that fed the driving force of the factories, the hills rich in timber, the formation of a local very active entrepreneurial class, particularly linked to trade with Sicily, Sardinia, Tuscany, Liguria, are all elements that favored the development of local ceramic workshops.
