History of art and craftsmanship TRADITION #italy

Photo from Italy by @giuseppebaldassarri Nestled on the soft hills between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea, Montottone, a charming town in the Marche region of the province of Fermo, tells a very long history of art and craftsmanship tradition, especially that of ceramics which earned the town a gracious nickname commemorating the ancient activity of potters. THE TRADITION It is not yet clear how and who introduced the tradition linked to the working of clay and the production of ceramics for domestic use to Montottone. What is known for sure is that it is necessary to go back to the 13th century to locate its origins, demonstrating the secularity of the potters' activity in this area of ​​the region. It is no coincidence, therefore, that the locality has, for some time now, deserved the nickname of "lu country of li coccià" which underlines how terracotta craftsmanship in these parts has always represented one of the most significant elements of art. and local culture. The processing techniques have been handed down over the centuries from father to son to reach almost unchanged to the present day, even if today, unfortunately, there is only one shop left to carry on this ancient tradition. And it does so by still making use of the classic equipment, such as the lathe and the oven, and the ancient procedures, such as the manual treatment of clay and the artisanal mixing of paints. Each product obtained is a unique artifact that evokes lost traditions linked to family life, to working the fields, to games.
