majolica of Deruta and the painstakingly artworks of our
own Maestro Umberto, are both noted for the stylized
portrait of heads and figures.
In the renaissance era, these masterfully hand painted
wall plates, jars and bowls, were exchanged as gifts
among the noble families as they were often commissioned
to depict a family member and also exchanged in special
occasions such as wedding or anniversary and in
as symbol of wealth and power.
