The area of Florence and Siena has developed over the centuries the craft of garden pottery, famous throughout the world for the forms of refined design but especially for the quality of terracotta. Tuscan terracotta is the best garden terracotta in the world. It’s only thanks to the high quality of the clay that in Tuscany has been able to develop such a long-lived craftsmanship over the centuries. The clays of Impruneta and Siena are among the best clays for the presence of galestro and iron oxide, thanks to which it is possible to make pots with high strength. Terracotta of Impruneta, is the most famous Galestro clay in the world, it is been extracted for hundreds of years, in a natural way, from the hills of the Impruneta area, in the valleys of the Ema and Greve rivers. Did you know that Filippo Brunelleschi in 1419 chose the terracotta of Impruneta to build the dome of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence?
