SICILY

LA CERAMICA DI CALTAGIRONE

A Millenary Tradition of Handmade & Handpainted Ceramics

In a tiny Sicilian Town, a millenary tradition 

When I met Simona

When I met Simona, I immediately understood how special she was. But you know what? She still doesn't understand hoe incredible is what she does! 

History of Caltagirone Ceramic

When tourists come in Sicily, they usually remain shocked by the taste of Sicilian vegetables and they always ask me why. Well, the reason is a mix of environmental characteristics, like the high sun irradiation, the Sicilian soil, water from aquifers, which have a high degree of salinity which gives a sweet flavor to the tomato. But the other 50% depends on the fact that we don't force vegetables to grow faster or all year long or to produce more and more. We respect the natural cycle of nature. In Sicily, starting from June until September, tomatoes naturally ripes. Ciliegino from Pachino and Datterino are just a few of the most famous variety that grows in Sicily. Sicilian Tomatoes are extremely popular all over the world because of the high organoleptic qualities, a rich peculiar taste and a high level of C Vitamins and polyphenols.
