  • A collection of buildings from various eras, connected by courtyards, where the different phases of the clay and the production of handmade pottery; on the walls and courtyards the sampling of products: bricks, tiles, vases, sculptures depicting people and animals, ... almost infinite in quantity. This is the Furnace Curti via Tobagi 8 (Barona), heir of the historic Brickyard Curti, who in 1400 was near the Canal, to the columns of San Lorenzo. The last seat, chosen by Attilio Curti in early 1900, for the family business, a company that has centuries of history; and who built and decorated some of the nicest buildings of Milan and Lombardy: the Ca ' Granda, first of all, then the Certosa of Pavia, the Morimondo Abbey, the Abbey of Clairvaux, the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the Archbishop's Palace, the Teatro Fossati, the Cemetery of Pavia, Lomellina, Zeme Cathedral, the Basilica of San Marco, the Cathedral of Monza. I visited thanks to MilanoGuida, with the passionate and knowledgeable guide Daria Curti, wife of the current owner, Alberto; He told us a brief history of the family and the activity of furnace workers; We did see (with the help of the workers and artisans working at the furnace) the different stages of the process, explaining in detail; showed us the range of subjects that the furnace can produce; drove us between warehouses and courtyards. Not being particularly interested in the production of pottery, I found the visit interesting, but a bit long and too detailed. Being, however, very interested in architecture, I wish they had some more in-depth analysis on the structure of the site where, for a time, were present together work and family life of Curti and of their workers and its transformations (the presence of a small chapel which today is bound to the existence of an input – much nicer, in my opinion, than on the modern via Tobagi – via san Giuseppe Cottolengo, the destination of spaces for artists, etc.).

  • Do you remember the movie with Benigni and Troisi?. Title: we can do is cry. Right when you cross the gates of entrance of the Furnace will not say you are projected in the middle ages Curti but little we miss. It's amazing that in a super modern, super technology may still exist in Milan a space which in some ways is outside our current reality. Is an experience that deserves to be lived. Seeing is believing.

  • Historic furnace for baking of ceramics and pottery, the oldest in Milan and perhaps of Lombardy. You can cook the vs. Ceramic creations or clay, buy fine products, colors, accessories x paint, the land base to work with white or red. Also present in the furnace area artists ' studios and their shows finished creations. We recommend a guided tour on the third weekend of may, well worth the trip.

  • Nice no doubt but too bad the service from the staff in the air clay and glazes for sale, very poor ... customer service is essential, it's a shame mostly because it makes people not returning ...

  • From 1400 medieval village. You can attend pottery classes for children, painting and mosaic. Once a year you can participate in the workshops and create various objects with clay under the guidance of a competent teacher. It's free. Then, if you wish, you can buy very nice objects, including magnet for the fridge very cute with costs from 3 to 15 euros. My little nephew Leonardo is a terrific time to "create" a turtle and a Dachshund.
