Ceramic Stuido Overview
We once asked a guest to name the highlight of his three-week stay at Rocca di Benano, and he answered, “Visiting Marino in his castle!” In Viceno, the next village over, at the town’s highest point, there’s a medieval castle that doubles as the studio of world renowned ceramic artist Marino Moretti. Marino is a wonderful host who welcomes Benano guests to his studio for a peek at his uniquely beautiful work, a glimpse at how he does it, and a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. We would happily put you in touch with Marino to make an appointment. If you miss the chance to visit his studio, at least stop by his ceramic store, which is located kitty-corner from the massive and unforgettable cathedral of Orvieto.
