Cerreto Sannita

Cerreto Sannita (BN) Campania

If we had to choose a symbol that embodies Cerreto Sannita, it would have to be its ceramics. The pottery tradition has been handed down over the generations for centuries. Today, the colors, shapes, and decoration of these artefacts make them beautiful little treasures to be admired. Palazzo Sant’Antonio, a former Franciscan monastery, now houses the municipal offices, the Museo Civico and the Museo della Ceramica Cerretese, which safeguards the history, rituals, and wonderful examples of local majolica. The museum is divided into two parts, one devoted to ancient ceramics and one to contemporary ceramics. In addition to its art, colors, and materials, this is also a place of nature and history. Just on the outskirts of the village is the Matese regional park, the green heart of the local area, while its historic center is home to numerous churches and shrines, including the cathedral with its wonderful bell towers clad with green and yellow majolica tiles.
