    Ceramics is the great protagonist of the Apulian handicrafts of which Grottaglie, near Taranto, is the capital. Ceramics making of Grottaglie draws its origin from an ancient and consolidated tradition and today seems able to aspire to a large international market. Till the last century, Laterza also producted pregious majolica and today it is trying to recover it again.. Actually,in Grottaglie there are about sixty artisan teachers. Most of the shops are set in the ancient ceramics area,close to Castello Episcopio. In it pieces of forniture,ceramics for table,garden,art and collection objects are produced.These last one,the most precious,are the most appreciated by the estimators.The artistic cribs, the stoups,the dollys connected with the legend about ius primae noctis,are splendid.Among the craft production,wrought iron and artistic glass in Martina Franca(TA) and embroidery in Laterza,are pointed out

    Remember that it's southern Italy and EVERYTHING is closed in the afternoon (approximately between 1pm and 4pm) when it's hottest. So don't plan to go there in the afternoon to visit some churches and the museum. You will be very dissapointed. Get there in the morning.
