Anghiari, Asciano, Borgo San Lorenzo, Carmignano, Impruneta, Montelupo Fiorentino, Montepulciano, Montopoli in Val d'Arno, Sesto Fiorentino, Trequanda and Vico Pisano. What do these towns have in common? Well, besides the fact that they are all in Tuscany, of course! These are all Ceramic Cities, places that boast an important and unique tradition along with their beautiful landscapes, good food and great history: ceramic production. In this area, the ancient art of molding the earthy material and giving it shape, of enriching an idea with color and decoration, of transforming an intuition into an object, is not just about manufacturing, it’s about cultural tradition.
To help preserve this precious resource, the Tuscan Ceramic Cities are united in an association, Terre di Toscana.
Thanks to coordination between the cities, there is also a special free card "Pass per la Ceramica", which is distributed at museums, shops, some hotels and tourist information offices. Cardholders receive discounts and special offers at museums, exhibition centers and private facilities on the circuit.
Discover Tuscany by following this unusual path: meet the artisans, learn the techniques, and look closely at the kilns!
