After visiting the museum, let’s explore the historic centre of Montelupo. Admiring the artisan products of the past is certainly exciting, but shopping is fun! There are several stores and workshops lining the streets that sell famous locally-produced ceramics. With a bit of luck, we can also see artisans at work as they transform clay and decorate their wares with their own personal styles.
Every year, the last week in June is dedicated to the Ceramics Festival, an important event for the sector with attendees from all over the country. The program includes a vast range of initiatives, including workshops, exhibitions, workshops and games for children.
And for those who love the topic, a ceramics-making course is available for individuals and groups, experts and amateurs: each participant can find the “team” that they want to work with.
