Via Capello 29
This small kiln is definitely worth a visit. You will often be able to see Mario Mariani making huge garden vases entirely by hand from the ground up. With luck, you might see him firing up his wood-burning kiln, identical to those used since at least Roman times. No thermometers. He assesses the heat by the colour of the white-hot pots. Mario used these traditional techniques to make the tiles used in the restoration of several famous Tuscan churches.
