The museum covers a total area of square meters of which are exhibition space and for storage. On the ground floor there are temporary exhibition halls and a library on the history of ceramics, which contains more than volumes. The museum documents systematically local production from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, in addition to an archaeological section, which provides an illustrative overview of the main production of antiquity in Italy and Greece.
The section covering majolica luster is particularly interesting; this is a technique that made Deruta workshops particularly famous in the sixteenth century. The collection on the " compendiaria " production of the seventeenth century, characterized by decorative complexity and color, is noteworthy.
Thematic sections are devoted to pharmacy ceramics, reassembled original furniture an old grocery, the sixteenth-century majolica flooring and the nucleus of votive plaques, often inspired by those of the nearby sanctuary of the Madonna dei Bagni. What makes the museum unique is the storage collection housed in a metal tower of four floors communicating on all levels with the building of the former convent; it is a stately building, publicly accessible and properly equipped for study.

The San Francesco a Montone architectural ensemble.Bevagna is a village in the Umbria region of central Italy, close to Spello and in the Vale of Spoleto, that has been a settlement since at least the time of the Ancient Romans. The highlight of your visit to the pretty village is the medieval square called Piazza Silvestri with its two ancient churches and other 13th century buildings, but there are other sites of interest in the town so be sure to explore.
Entering the town through Foligno Gate you immediately have a good view of the Roman and medieval walls, which are fairly well preserved and include towers of various shapes, mostly square but also round and polygonal.
Also in this area you can visit the Church of Saint Francisbuilt around the 13th century, together with its bell tower. The church interior was renovated in the 18th century but contains works dating back to earlier centuries. In front of the church you can still see the 1st century Roman Theatre, which could hold, they say, about 10, spectators. Continuing through Bevagna to the Piazza Garibaldi and Cannara Gate there is an ancient medieval church, now partly destroyed, called the Madonna of the Snow.
This is located near an ancient temple 2nd century ADdedicated to Saturn, or perhaps to Hercules. In a room of these baths a mosaic floor is still visible - it is black and white, with scenes of life in the sea, with figures of tritons, seahorses, lobsters and squid. The museum has an archaeological section which holds various artefcts from the Archaic, Roman Imperial and Medieval periods. In three other rooms, landscapes, portraits and works of artists are exhibited, such as those of G.
Pecetti [for more works in Bevagna by this very Realist painter see the Cloister of San Domenico, where he painted over 20 works about the life of San Giacomo], G. It has a 14th century portal with a painted lunette. Thes include the 13th century Palazzo dei Consolidecorated with slabs of travertine.
The fountain in the centre of the square also looks ancient but was actually added towards the end of the 19th century. There are two important churches in the square:. Above them runs a continuous cornice. For example, in the frieze of the door is a small mountain to symbolize Christ while the four streams symbolize the four Evangelists and the growing vine represents the Church or God himself.
In the cornice various animals are also depicted, such as a fox and deer, with a clear symbolic significance, as was typical of medieval sculptures.
While it is difficult for us to understand these symbolic representations, medieval man, although illiterate, immediately sensed the message. The interior has three naves joined by a series of arches.Carlo Vantaggioli. Moreno Landrini ad un passo dalla vittoria.

One of the joys of this trio of Umbrian towns is that they are on the doorstep of Assisi, which attracts about 5 million visitors a year, yet they belong to another world - one of "grand tourists" rather than coach tours; of gourmet antipasti in a local wine bar rather than undercooked slabs of pizza in places where you barely hear a word of Italian.
Although they lack the spiritual significance of the birthplace of St Francis, and have nothing quite on the same artistic level as Giotto's frescoes in the lower church of the Basilica di San Francesco, Spello, Montefalco and Bevagna are by no means minor attractions.
Along with Foligno, the vibrant little market-and-transport hub around which they cluster, they offer a blend of art, history, food, wine, landscape and crafts that makes them worth a week of anyone's time. The area also has an impressive new piece of architecture - or perhaps that should read "art". Designed by the year-old Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro and inaugurated in June, the Tenuta Castelbuono winery near Bevagna is part building, part sculpture, part art installation.
Nicknamed "Il Carapace" the tortoise shellthis flattened copper dome, which emerges at the top of a slope of vines like some prehistoric beast waking from sleep, is the centrepiece of a new vineyard planted with sagrantino di montefalco grapes. A secular cathedral and, in Pomodoro's words, "the first of my sculptures that you can actually walk into"the Castelbuono winery has a dramatic-looking tasting room under the dome and an equally striking cellar space, its up-lit walls painted the shade of a Tiepolo sky.
The splendidly intact town walls are draped around the centro storico like a necklace. Hispellum was originally a Roman settlement - it lay on the Via Flaminia consular road, close to the strategic junction for Perugia.
Umbria's medieval hill towns: Spello, Montefalco and Bevagna
The most impressive remnant of this stage of the town's history, apart from the walls themselves, is the Porta Venere, an Augustan-era gate flanked by two sided towers, standing in magnificent isolation on Spello's west. This church has a finely sculpted mediaeval portal, but the real treat is inside: the Cappella Baglioni side chapel is decorated by one of Pinturicchio's most joyous and colourful fresco cycles, painted in for the powerful Baglioni family and centred on the birth and childhood of Jesus.
There, in the Disputation in the Temple, is the priore Troilo Baglioni himself, looking decidedly smug as he considers his 15 minutes of time-travel fame.
Next to him is the church treasurer, holding a bulging money bag. Nearby, there's a decent civic art gallery and a couple of other worthwhile churches, but Spello's real pleasures, apart from its two standout sights, are the civilised pace of life of the town and the lovely Subasio marble from which it is built, which takes on a peach-pink hue around sunrise and sunset. The Palazzo Bocci is housed in an 18th-century residence on Via Cavour.
The centro storico apartments Buonanotte Barbanera and La Casetta have decor straight from a coffee-table book of contemporary country Italian interiors. La Cantina, on Via Cavour 2, serves refined versions of Umbrian peasant dishes such as lamb meatballs with artichokes.
Or try the tiny, good-value trattoria De Dada on Via Cavour Certain central Italian towns from the Middle Ages look as if they have been laid out by artists inspired by the marine fossils that were abundant in the soil of this area.
Think of Siena's conch-shell-shaped central square, or Montepulciano, where the main street spirals up like the shell of a sea-snail. Montefalco is a starfish: the 12th-century town was entered through five gates, each one associated with a parish church and each with a lane that leads to a more or less five-sided piazza at the town's highest point.
Though smaller than Spello, Montefalco feels equally lived-in. Known as "the balcony of Umbria" because of its lofty position and views, the town keeps itself busy as the centre of the sagrantino wine zone.
It also has a tradition of woven linen and linen-cotton, kept alive by the Pardi family tessiturapardi.
Upstairs in the pinacoteca is an austere 12th-century crucifix by a painter from the Spoleto school.De veiligste en eenvoudigste route met de minste risico's dat men zich onderweg vergist.
