    Must Visit Potter in Deurta
    There are a vast number of maioliche ceramic potters in the wonderful town of Deruta, located in the Umbria region of Italy. Do not miss a visit to Rolando and Goffredo Nulli at 142 Via Tibernia. (about 30 minutes out of Todi). We visited on a hot day in July and met one of the brothers who spent quite a bit of time with us discussing the history and his art. These are wheel thrown and individually painted pieces. They had a great selection from tableware, to lamps. holiday ornaments and beautiful large bowls and vases, etc. My husband has thrown pots as a hobby for many years and was thrilled to be asked to go downstairs and invited to sit down at the wheel and throw a piece under the watchful eye of the owner. We bought several pieces. They were shipped and arrived as promised. All of our gift recipients loved their ceramics. One suggestion, we were so involved with visiting different shops we almost missed driving to the top of old Deruta. The museum was fascinating and the town midevil and beautiful.

    Wonderful Creations!
    We had the most wonderful time visiting this store in May. It was the Italian Labor Day or worker's day so many people were taking the day off. We wrote ahead of our trip to ask if they would be open that day and approximate time of our arrival. Rolando was there and waiting for us. He was a very nice man and very helpful. He even threw a bowl to show us the process. What a lovely time we had. Everything was gorgeous and I wanted it all. The coolers are vivid and all hand painted. What artists he and his brother are! Don't miss this shop in Deruta (not far from Assissi).

    Fun experience
    We had a nice time browsing the shops in Deruta, but the experience at Maioliche Nulli was best. Rolando is so kind and funny- he even let us take a try at the pottery wheel. His creations are beautiful and well priced. Definitely check him out :)

I went into the shop in the middle of August. I was welcomed warmly by the owner who kindly showed me around the shop and explained the process behind the creation of the beautiful ceramic pieces (in Italian of course, of which I understand very little but he was incredibly patient.) Then he took me downstairs and demonstrated how a plate was made on the pottery wheel. He showed me how to use the wheel and even took a few photos of me trying it out! Truly, a magical experience. The prices are fair and you shouldn't miss going.

Our family (with young children) visited Maioliche Nulli in the early afternoon the first week of June. The brothers were so kind to our children, demonstrating how they make the bowls and explaining the process patiently again and again. The products are lovely - of very high quality, and very reasonably priced. They carefully wrapped every item we purchased and everything made it home perfectly!
Highly, highly recommend. We will be back! We will also be telling the travel agencies we know about it.

Rolando welcomed us with a grin and immediately explained the differences in the prices and quality of the ceramics. He took us down to the workshop and quickly threw a bowl while I shot a video. We went to several other shops and could tell just how talented he is. Stop by, enjoy the banter and high quality, reasonably priced ceramics.

This particular place is relatively hidden compared to the larger obvious ones as you come in to town from the south but it is filled wall to wall with amazing pieces. The two brothers who run the place are warm, friendly, good humored and all to happy to go out of their way to help you. We were lucky enough to have a demonstration while there purchasing additional pottery for family back home and a few things for ourselves. Highly recommend.

After seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor, my wife and I visited the shop and met Rolando. He immediately asked us if we wanted to see the workshop and and throw some pots. After watching his skillful hands, it was our turn, and hilarity ensued. Clay was going everywhere and we couldn't stop laughing. Rolando is a gem of an artist, with infectious enthusiasm, and love of his craft. After all the clay was cleaned up, we went back upstairs and did some serous shopping amongst all of the great pieces of pottery. This place is a must visit!

First of all the enthusiasm of Rolando and Goffredo is infectious! We take guests here for many reasons and they come away happy. They are always invited down to the studio for an amazing experience of throwing their own pot. The quality and selection of the ceramics for sale is wonderful and the prices very fair. I cannot say enough good things about this shop. We have three places we shop at in Deruta, and this is one of them. There are so many shops in Deruta, some do not have their own factory or make their own products. It is very important to read reviews and for safety, do not pay cash if you wish to have something shipped. Here at Nulli they can be trusted for quality, honesty and for really good shipping! Highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Maioliche Nulli. It is a beautiful shop, full of beautiful pieces of ceramics. We arrived at lunchtime but found the shop open and was given a warm welcome by Goffredo who kindly offered to bring his brother back from lunch inorder for us to see how the pottery is made. Rolando came and took time to show us his tidy studio. He took great care to help us all have a go at making a bowls from lumps of clay- great fun ! Our daughters (aged 10 and 11) thought it was a real highlight of our time in Italy. We have come home with a few pieces of ceramics as reminders of a happy day out.
