The production of artistic ceramics is a traditional and ancient activity in Sicily. Once widely spread in various parts of the regional territory, it has been concentrated in a few districts, while once renowned places have gradually decommissioned production, turning their attention to other activities.
The video presents an example of the recovery of the production of artistic ceramics in the territory of Collesano, by an artisan who, by accidental knowledge of this lost tradition, decided to try its revitalization, giving life to a business in continuous growth, in which the second generation is working, enriching the business model.
