Calabrese collection

In september 2017, MuMa put on display these precious majolica pieces coming from professor and majolica enthusiast Vincenzo Calabrese’s private collection. The items shown here are examples of different products made by ceramic craftsmen operating in Laterza between the 17th and 18th century. A small tray with a lion passant framed by acanthus leaves, a recurring motif in Laterza’s majolica production. Two holy water fonts, one with a Benedictine Christogram and the other with a picture of Saint Lucia, both decorated with flowers and leaves and embellished with a crown in the upper section. Lastly, the most important piece is a big plate decorated with lilies and branches on its wide rim and, in the middle, with a small landscape, a lion passant and a naked woman keeping a dog on a leash.
