I work, study and teach ceramics with great passion and desire to share my cultural heritage. Living in Vietri sul mare means to be surrounded by ceramics and its old and creative history. Vietri boasts a four centuries tradition and is one of the oldest ceramics centres in Italy. My passion pushed me to found an association that aims to preserve this art. Vittoria collaborates with me. She welcomes the foreign guests and deals with international communication.

The included walking tour was a real bonus. Painting was fun for even the extremely un-artistic. Mara did her best to touch up everything so the souvenir ceramics are ours while still demonstrating professional technique.

Had a wonderful time! The tour of the city was very interesting, as I knew nothing about Vietri! Mara was very helpful with the painting- she showed me some really cool techniques! Will definitely return to Vietri next time i’m in Italy!

Mara created such a personal experience for us. She was very knowledgeable on her craft and even helped enhance our final product! Vitoria, our guide, was equally as sweet. She had a great knowledge of the history of ceramics and made our tour of downtown Vietri so memorable. It’s an experience definitely worth doing again!

My sister and I had a wonderful afternoon. First walking around part of the town with Vittoria, who is very knowledgeable of the history of Vietri Sul Mare and of ceramics. We went to Mara's studio where we had fun painting an item. I asked for help as I wanted to paint a donkey on a mug for my son's birthday. We had a lot of laughs as my donkey was not the best but Mara turned my mug into a magical picture with an orange tree, houses etc. My son is going to love it.

This is a nice way to experience and learn about Vietri. Vittoria is a lovely host and very knowledgeable about her town. We had several relaxing hours with Mara painting our ceramic pieces and are looking forward to receiving them (we booked this on our last day in Italy so were unable to wait for them to be fired).
