Handmade ceramics

It was born, in 1997, the artistic handicraft laboratory “Il Volo”, in an ancient shop in the historical centre of Sarteano, where now I work in collaboration with my wife Sandra and where I realize all my products by hand with local clay and decorated with glazes and leadfree colours.

Sarteano Castle

The first sight when approaching Sarteano is the giant castle at the top of the hill at 500 plus meters above sea level and surrounded by green. To visit it is to make a trip back through hundreds of years of history, passing through the small alleyways and the giant Todeschini Piccolomini Palace, which stands just below it.

Archaeological Museum

The Museum was inaugurated on 27 September 1997 to house the finds conserved in the warehouses of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale of Florence, coming from excavations of the 2ndhalf of the 19th and 20th centuries. To this were added a small group of finds of the Antiquarium Comunale, which had been exhibited in the Town Hall until 1995, and the private Bologni collection, that was donated to the museum. Material of isolated and fortuitous discoveries had converged in Florence
over decades.
