VIETRI

Vietri is the most Southern village of the Amalfi Coast and is famous all over the world for the fabrication of the ceramics. To the ancient tradition has been placed side by side the expression more innovative brought by some foreign artists arrived here from the North Europe in the first part of the past century.

City with Etruscan origin, Vietri subsequently was conquered from the Samnites, the Lucans and finally by the Romans after the victory on the italic alloy with the Samnite Wars.
Its name seems to derive from the latin Veteri, as the Romans called the city.

Characteristic is the Parocchiale of San Giovanni Battista (XVII cent.) with a coloured dome made of majolica. Another monument of Vietri is the Arciconfraternita dell'Annunziata e del Rosario (XVI sec.), also decorated with majolica.
