DERUTA

Few kilometers far from Perugia, along the Tiber valley it rises Deruta, synonym since the Middle Ages of ceramics production.

At first the citizen produced simple tile tools for themselves but, with the advent of San Francesco, the production increased due to the needs of the rising convents of the region and subsequently, through the import of new colors and techniques from Africa and Arabia, the technique was deeply refined. All that can be better understood both visiting the Museum of the Ceramics and the medieval village: entering from "Porta di S. Michele Arcangelo" it's possible to see some ancient kilns in disuse.
Deruta is able to offer also remarkable examples of architecture like the Palazzo Comunale (1300) and the Gothic church of S. Francesco (1388) in Piazza dei Consoli, and the church of S. Antonio Abbate with frescoes by Bartolomeo and Giovanni Battista Caporali, representing the life of the Saint.
The Pinacoteca Comunale, hosted in the ononimous Palace, keeps an important collection of paintings coming from all the churches of the Deruta.
