In 1982, Antonino Puglia, a ceramics enthusiast and artist, decided to set up a workshop on the Sorrento peninsula to revive the ancient tradition of Campania's artistic ceramics. Thus was born the Ceramica Artistica di Sorrento laboratory. The sun and the sea, as well as the most vivid colour palette of nature inspired by geometric and vegetal details combined with the ancient traditions of the Sorrento peninsula, are the themes used for the production of this limited series of artistic ceramic pieces.
