The Museum

The Regional Ceramics Museum in Deruta is the oldest ceramics museum in Italy; established in 1898, it has over 6,000 works.
The museum occupies the ground floor and two upper floors: it is introduced by a lecture hall and it describes the various periods of the evolution of Deruta majolica from the earliest production to the that of the 20th century. The tale of ceramic art is told by certain theme areas, such as the reconstruction of an old apothecary, the display of complete collections, and the sections on majolica tiled floors, lusterware and votive plaques. The contemporary section consists mainly of works from the National Multiple Artist in Majolica Fair and the Deruta Prize; the archeological section instead offers a meaningful overview of the main types of pottery produced in ancient times and brings together examples of Greek, Italiot, Etruscan and Roman pottery.
