Terracotta Tour at Fratte Rosa

From EUR 8

Go and discover an authentic land, with amazing natural beauties, through the art and traditions of the place; come to Fratte Rosa, an enchanting village on the Marche hills, in a territory still to be explored.

Fratte Rosa has been for centuries the cradle of terracotta. Its land, very rich in clay, has allowed the flourishing of the art of forging terracotta, preserved by the local potters, since the Middle Age.

The production of popular ceramics still continues in Fratte Rosa through the selling in the workshops, preserving an artisan heritage of "archaic figures", started in the Middle Ages used for cooking and the storage of food.
