I fell in love with the work of one particular artist, Silvana Argenti, and we bought as many pieces as we could reasonably carry for the remainder of our trip. Mrs. Daniela packed everything very well, and we went on our way. When... More

I go here every time in Florence. A small store, centrally located, very a very good selection of Deruta and other locally produced ceramics. Bit by bit I'm developing my collection.

On a trip through Florence I picked up five serving pieces to compliment my everyday dishes. I get so many complements every time I use them!!! The staff was very helpful even with the language barrier.
