The Francesco De Maio’s museum offers a journey through the history of ceramics that starts from the document attesting the sale of 50 oil pitchers made on 3 October 1494 by master artisan Matteo Cassetta, ancestor of the De Maio family. It is an extremely important document, attesting that since the 15th century Vietri sul Mare, a small village located at the entrance of the wonderful Amalfi Coast, is known for the art of producing “bone et impetenate” ceramics. Over time, the Cassetta family evolved towards the handmade creation of majolica terracottas, the so called “riggiole”, used especially to cover the floors of churches and noble residences.
