Skilful local craftsmen have been able to reinterpret and reinvent kilnmen's old job.

Using valuable white clay with blue veins, they make vases, amphoras, cups and tiles in the traditional way.

The Pisticci ‘coppi’ are famous. Ceramic and terracotta objects are full of rural charm. Potters shape plates with bright dark enamel paints, jugs with decorations in relief, bird-shaped whistles in bright colours.
