Vietri sul Mare
Founded by Vincenzo Pinto in the 1800's, this is the oldest of the handcrafted tile and ceramic art production houses still operating in Vietri sul Mare. Focused on decorative tiles for walls or floors, styles range from detailed, vibrant baroque to simple and decorative, often with floral and harvest themes. Vases, dishes, and glassware are also among the factory’s output, and there is an on-site kitchen and bath showroom. The exterior of the building is covered in tiles, many with images of people engaging in seafaring activities like fishing and boat building, an homage to the coastal town.
If you like the look of quaint, mismatched tablware, head for the room in Ceramica Pinto that stocks single pieces that can be purchased à la carte versus as a complete set.
