Italy has a long history in the production of high quality ceramics. The term comes from the Greek word 'keramos', meaning clay. The Etruscans were the first to produce ceramics in Italy with their 'Bucchero' technique. Then during the Renaissance, Tuscany and Umbria became famous for producing 'Maiolica' ceramics and in Sicily, the famous 'Baroque' tiles were produced. But, as with all things in Italy, each region has its own fascinating speciality that they consider to be the best of all!
