Ceramica Pinto, Italian Ceramics by the Sea
Discover traditional ceramics with the historic workshop Ceramica Pinto in Vietri in the region of Campania.
The first of the Pinto family to start the family business was Vincenzo Pinto – born in Vietri sul Mare in 1870. He rented an old ceramics factory of the beginning of the 19th century and developed the workshop until the famous tiles began exporting in the 1920s. Many important designers, including Rossi the Founder of the Salerno School of Ceramics, Tot, Rivetti in the 60s, and artist Carrano, collaborated with Ceramica Pinto through the years. Rosaura and Carlo Pinto are now at the lead of this historical workshop preserving ancient techniques and designs. Discover more on Artemest.com
