Deruta

Cities and Towns in Umbria

 

Deruta is known throughout the world for the production of precious majolica and ceramics, the decoration of which dates back to the Medieval ages, during the domination of the church. Even in those days ceramics were exported, guaranteeing Deruta a notable income. It was thanks to the decorations inspired by Raffaello that the product became increasingly famous.
 
Its still possible to admire the majolica in the Ceramic Museum of Palazzetto Municipale, or as architectural ornamentation on the facades of the Church of Madonna delle Piagge. But Deruta is not only about ceramics: characterized by its castle like construction, the city retains, like many of Umbrian towns, its medieval identity with the Porta San Michele Archanegelo, the Palazzotto Municipale, the Church of St Francis, the Church of St Antonio, the Church of the Madonna del Divino Amore.
 
The Artistic heritage of Deruta is abundant, with a series of paintings by from artists such as Alunno, Amorosi, Baciccio, Stendardo, Fiorenzo di Lorenzo and Guido Reno.
