Deruta, Faenza and Florence all have a special Raffaellesco interpretation in their majolica tradition. The name comes from Raphael, one of the great artists of the Italian Renaissance.

An exceptionally qualitative piece , the richest in details and color shades ever seen!Compare with others and you will see the difference! This, at the moment, is the only way to guarantee that it is really made in Italy and not somewhere else.
