With heart to the past, hands in the present and an eye to the future
We carry on a family tradition that we feel like a second skin.
It was the Salentoof authentic beauty, of tall olive trees, robust and proud, to frame the summer countryside.
It was a time of simple things, of hard bread and freshly picked tomatoes, of intense aromas and strong colors.
It was 1650 and the tradition of Colì ceramics began in Cutrofiano.
Cutrofiano and terracotta
The processing of ceramics is an ancient art (Keramos in Greek means clay vase)
The objects made with this poor raw material had a progressive increase in their value thanks to precise, creative and meticulous craftsmanship.
Cutrofiano – in the province of Lecce – represents one of the Salento centers of excellence in the processing of ceramics, strong in a geographic area naturally characterized by the presence of a clay layer at shallow depth. Not by chance the name Cutrofiano is composed by the Greek noun “cutra” which means vase, and by the verb “fio” which corresponds to fabricate. Cutrofiano is part of the 40 Italian ceramic cities recognized by the Italian Association of Ceramics.
