The Museum

The museum. Tradition and the local area

The unique beauty and elegance of the artworks on show at Museo della Ceramica di Savona are a clear demonstration of a local tradition upheld in Savona and Albisola for more than six centuries. These two local areas together constitute one of the oldest and most important ceramics centers in the Mediterranean. Still today, ceramic tradition is one of the most important elements of figurative expression that best represents the history, art and economy of the local area. Steadfast representations of this tradition can be seen in museums, churches, monuments and in general architecture, as well as numerous ceramics companies and factories that are still in business today.

The tour. A journey through styles and eras

Covering four floors of the museum, the exhibition plunges visitors into the enchanting world of ceramics. From traditional 15th and 16th century “laggioni“, tiles, and majolica pottery that draws inspiration from the East, to well-known Baroque craftsmanship and 18th century artwork and décor. The tour then travels towards more modern times, through the technological advances of the 19th century, before finally arriving at the artistic revolution during the 20th century and contemporary design.
