The majolica tradition in Deruta dates back to 1200, making Deruta one of the epicenters of majolica production in the world.
Majolica is fired clay dipped in a bath of glaze (metal oxides) covering the porous “terracotta” surface, then painted with metal oxide colors, sprayed with a glass varnish and finally fired for a second time.
