Ceramica artistiche Sammartino e Delfino, Caltagirone

(4.3/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Vibrantly colored ceramics with swirling patterns and detailed designs flourish within the old town of Ceramica artistiche Sammartino e Delfino. Long famous for its production of pottery and ceramics, this town has a proud artisanal history displayed throughout the buildings, shops, and streets. Though there are a number of palaces and churches to discover, the highlight is the Scalinata di Santa Maria del Monte. This monumental 142-step staircase connects the lower part of town with the older upper town, and each step is decorated with different ceramic patterns. This staircase is the setting for two noteworthy festivals: the enormous floral displays of the Infiorita at the end of May, and the Illuminata at the end of July, in which thousands of candles flicker along the many steps.

  • The achievements of tim Dolphin Sammartino always have an excellent quality. Is not improvisation nor pure commerce, but study of quality and competence. Few ceramics make me say that beautiful! These are one of those! I would highly recommend.
