Vietri sul Mare does not mean only decorated ceramics: there is “another” Vietri, the producer of "riggiole" in handmade cotto, still preserved in the fabulous floors of the nobiliary eighteenth-century dwellings. In that period the Vietri Cotto was something else. And it’s still the same now; in fact, the handmade “Riggiola” still celebrates and enhances the ceramic production of the Ceramica Francesco De Maio. Made with a selection of clear, local, filtered clays, which are mixed and poured into the frames with the shape of the tile you want. The finishing of the tiles is totally manual, and for the glazed ones there will be the second fire, in the muffle kiln which produces the diaphanous beauty of glazes and decorations.
