In the town of Grottaglie we find that the ceramic tradition brought to this area by the Greeks in the second century BC is still alive today. In fact Grottaglie, because of its large clay deposits, has been an uninterrupted center of ceramic production until today. And the contemporary master ceramist is Nicola Fasano. An ancestor of his, Francesco Nicola opened a ceramic store in Grottagle in 1623. These figures are inspired by the baroque ceramics of that period. But there is more. The Fasano workshop has been using an ancient oven but no one knew how old until an archeologists did some research. VO: The analysis done with carbon 14 has revealed that this oven dates back to 2,400 years ago. Generations of Fasanos have passed on their knowledge to their descendants. Today they have 30 ceramists, designers, modelers and enamelers , among the most talented in the field producing. ceramics known for their high quality and stylish design. Their work is now seen in the most prestigious stores and museums around the world. 18 generations of Fasanos have proven that by sticking passionately to their craft they can survive and thrive for centuries in an uncertain world of short lived fads. www.fasanocnf.it less
