For over a century Vincenzo Solimene and his family have worked in the ceramics business. With the completion of his factory in 1954 his newly built Ceramica Artistica Solimene became one of the most integral buildings of the century. Built in the town of Vietri Sul Mare right on the Amalfitan Coast, known for its ancient tradition of ceramic craftsmanship. Their most classic line Decoro Campagna, country style, brought Solimene worldwide recognition.
