Amalfi Ceramics

What can you say about Amalfi coast located on the steep southern shore of the Sorrentine Peninsula, other than incredible, or not. I see it as an independent state of affairs, the people stick unto themselves and many believe Amalfi is paradise, and it is. Yet dependent on tourists, and those hideous buses packed with Asians who flock to the stores to buy their very own ceramics, some imported from and made in China. 😂😂😂

The only land route to the Amalfi Coast is the 40 kilometres long Strada Statale 163 that runs along the coastline from the town of Vietri sul Mare in the east to Positano in the west. Thirteen municipalities are located on the Amalfi Coast, many of them centered on tourism, lemons, wwines, pomodoro extraordinaire and the local ceramics.

The yellow colour comes from the lemon but also from a community of German artists who, since the beginning of 1900 established themselves in Vietri, due to the low cost of life and the warm climate . This so called ‘ German Period’ generated an evolution about the manufacturing of the ceramic and the creation of new chromatic combinations between the ceramic and the“giallo di Vietri” (Vietri’s yellow). According to some, the ceramics arrived in Vietri around the V century B.C. with the Etruscans, according to others, they arrived in the late Renaissance thanks to the Sanseverino’ Princes.
