Renaissance Ceramics Collection

Relics from the 14th to 16th century

Camporgiano

The collection is exhibited in the main Camporgiano tower, which dates back to th second half of the 15th century. The museum, created in 1976, was completely redesigned and reopened in September of 1999. It takes up two floors: the ground floor houses ceramics from the 14th to 16th century which were found in the 1960 digs. The pieces, including Majorca pieces from Faenza, are testimony of the d'Este family's power in the Garfagnana region. Some pieces from Tuscany are also part of the collection. The main theme is fertility though representations of animals are also abundant. The first floor contains objects of daily use, including spoons and domestic supplies.
