Terracotta clay workshop
In Trequanda, terracotta clay is a centuries-old tradition, that even every house and every corner of the towns, included Castelmuzio and Petroio, are decorated with terracotta objects. On this tour you will meet a terracotta clay craftsman, who will explain the history of this material related to the territory and the handmade techniques. Under his super vision you will manipulate the clay and create small objects with the use of casts and molds. If you want you can request to bake and ship the object you have made. A visit to the Museum of Terracotta in Petroio will complete the experience; the museum hosts an important heritage of local culture: ancient terracotta artefacts and examples of traditional making process up to the modern time. A journey between past and present through the world of terracotta.
