This is little off the beaten path from historic centro but if you look in the plaza there are two pottery signs that direct you down a path and steps to the antique kilns and a small museum of various styles and artists of Deruta pottery. The kilns were uncovered when they were working on the house and the owner is passionate about preserving his families ceramic past. His wife is an American and was very gracious in explaining everything , her husband has a command of English but some of our questions required a lot of depth. The museum is cramped but the pieces and the artists represented were outstanding...you saw the evolution of forms and styles of Deruta pottery. A few pieces were featured at international expositions including one by his great uncle and grandfather (relationships and my command of Italian may be a little askew). It was a fascinating hour and explained a lot of the why's and how's of pottery construction and why Deruta.
