Write a Review

This collection is inspired by the sixteenth-century original production " Orsini - COLUMN" which is considered one of the most important productions of ceramics of the Renaissance. A set of apothecary jars that was made to Castles on the occasion of a marriage between two members of the Roman families of Orsini and Colonna, a major event that was to establish a reconciliation between the two families in conflict. In fact, the best-known piece, the flask with two handles bear hugging column, preserved in the British Museum, bears the inscription 
"Et sarrimo facie friends." This collection was considered the source of Faenza and has been attributed to Castelli in 1989. SIMONETTI, thanks to the research work and chromatic and morphological reconstruction, carried out with the archeological team, was the only workshop that had the honor to present its flank reproductions of the originals from collectors around the world . Thanks to extensive research conducted, the SIMONETTI is able to process a particular graphic study of the subjects and to faithfully recreate the sixteenth Blue palette Castellana.

Ceramiche Simonetti is a very famous in Italy and abroad, being one of the best producer of pottery in Castelli. Castelli is a little village in the centre of Italy, just close to the Gran Sasso Mountain.

In Castelli the art of ceramics has more than 500 years of history, and this little village is one of the five Italian towns popular for ceramics and majolicas. Some traditional and original items belonging in Castelli's collection are kept in London at the British Museum. Ceramiche Simonetti reproduces that ancient collection and offers new ones to satisfy the most different exigences and tastes.
