The value and pride of Impruneta
Already inhabited in Etruscan and Roman times, Impruneta is a delightful and small village located on the outskirts of Florence, known for its millenary art of terracotta.
Immersed in the countryside, this territory rich in culture has been handing down for centuries its ancient artisan practice of shaping and cooking the earth, a distinctive and characteristic element of Tuscan architecture and landscape.
Impruneta terracotta owes its uniqueness to the traditional skill with which local artisans work clay, a practice that has been preserved over time and adapted during the succession of different historical periods.
The art of terracotta has been able to stand out during the most intense cultural changes without ever losing its authenticity, reaching up to our days even richer in value and prestige, thanks to the improvement of new and modern manufacturing techniques.
