Description
  • the CASA Vestita is an outstanding palazzo in the ancient area of Grottaglie; it has its own splendid 19th century garden and beautiful exhibits
  • excavations have brought to light important and ancient pieces which are now displayed in a private museum
  • the Vestita family is represented today by three brothers, who pass on the ancient tradition of ceramics: Carmelo models the clay, Mimmo decorates the artefacts and Antonio, an engineer, collaborates on more complex projects
  • in their BOTTEGA Vestita in Via Santa Sofia 23 they make unique pieces in brilliant colours, which take typical local forms and renew them to suit contemporary tastes
  • like the “pumo”, a typical Grottaglie good luck charm that can be found on the balconies of the town’s historical and modern houses: a bud decorated with acanthus leaves, symbolising spring and the rebirth of nature
  • Pplease call ahead and make an appointment (we do it for you with great pleasure)
