Co będziecie robić

If you are looking for an out of the binaries experience to do something new and special, you are in the right place!

I will be happy to make you experience the day-life of an artisan, bringing you inside a pottery factory and then discovering the feel of clay manipulating.

We first will meet in my shop in Montelupo Fiorentino, opened for 20 years in a historical village known all over the world for its ceramic production. Montelupo is situated precisely in the middle of Pisa and Florence so it is easily reachable by train or by car in about a half-hour from both sides. It is a beautiful village and I hope you will love it as I do!

From the shop we will go together to the factory where I will show you the cycle of production of Italian handmade pottery, telling you the history behind and explaining all the techniques.

If you want, there is also the possibility to design and purchase something new that will be custom made for you by our artisans!

After the factory, it will be your turn! We will go back to the shop where my father will be happy to teach you how to make your pottery piece.

Don't worry if you never used a wheel, the course is funny and satisfying for everyone!
And as icing on the cake your creation will be fired and shipped to your house, to have a tangible memory of the experience but above all to have a piece of Tuscany at home!
Other things to note
If you have any doubt feel free to contact me, I will reply as soon as possible!

Hi, my name is Matteo, and first of all thank you for reading these words!

Since I was a child I saw my father and grandfather producing handmade ceramics, and in time I have inherited the same passion in this very ancient job.

For this reason, six years ago I decided to share this passion with everyone and to make and spread our products all over the world joining the family business.

I love to show what we make and now, with this new Airbnb experience, I would like to share with you all my knowledge and my passion for pottery, and then make something unique together!

Gdzie będziecie

Our shop is like our house, it will be a pleasure to let you live with us some special moments there.

The factory is where the magic happens, and you will see how many hands handle one single piece from raw clay to a decorated majolica.

But now I won't say more, it's a full-immersive experience that you have to feel with your eyes, your hands and your heart.

A friend recommended this experience for my husband, teenage daughters and me and I’m so glad we went. Visiting Montelupo was a easy train ride that put us in a lovely, quiet town. It was such a nice break from the hustle of Florence. Once we arrived, Matteo and his parents treated us like family! They were friendly and charming and we loved our time with them. We also loved meeting Alberto - the finisher in the shop. He made us feel like VIP’s and sent us home with memories we’ll always treasure. The skilled artisans in the factory are incredibly talented and so fun to watch. I signed up for the experience to try my hand at pottery but visiting the shop was just as memorable. Overall, this was a highlight of our 10 days in Italy and we are getting the best souvenirs ever - pottery that we made with Italian craftsmen. Matteo is passionate about sharing his town and the craft of pottery with others, which is why he started this AirBnB experience. Now I’m going to tell all my friends about meeting Matteo in Montelupo!

BOOK THIS experience!!! You will not be disappointed by your personal & treasured memories that will follow from this excursion. Matteo & our 2 prsn (myself & my teenage daughter’s) experience will be unforgettable & treasured… literally for years to come. Today, you can’t put a price on stopping time to enjoy with a teenager & having them immersed in an cultural experience of this kind. From my interest in what “I” wanted to make— to my daughters indecisiveness, in what she would ultimately make, was catered to by Matteo & his family— & in our viewing the selections within the factory showroom once there, seeing the factory process & knowing what would be best suited for us. Are “we” (collective we) really aware that when we eat off of… or use… a custom made ceramic piece crafted by hand, the Italian craftsman process can be up to six weeks in the making? You will learn & appreciate this generationally passed down family craft & love, shared & talk about your art for years to come. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank You All!!!

Esperienza bellissima e coinvolgente! Matteo e la sua famiglia sono stati meravigliosi, accompagnandoci nel mondo della ceramica con una passione ed un impegno raro da trovare! Scoprendo i vari passaggi che portano al prodotto finale ci siamo resi conto della difficoltà, professionalità e soprattutto tecnica ed esperienza che ci sono dietro ad ogni pezzo unico e completamente artigianale! Poi la prova pratica al tornio e l’invio di quanto fatto a casa é una chicca unica! Bravissimi!

This experience is awesome! It was so fun to see a production pottery studio where everything is hand made just the way (more or less) it has been for 100s of years. There is so much to learn on this trip. Plus you get to get your hands dirty and throw a pot you get to keep! How great is that :) Be sure to ask for lunch recommendations as the place we ate at today was amazing.

Esperienza fantastica! Io e la mia ragazza siamo stati in questo piccolo negozio di ceramica dove siamo stati accolti come amici e dove ci hanno fatto sentire a casa. Siamo stati a visitare la fabbrica e Matteo è stato bravissimo a spiegare e a rispondere a tutte le nostre domande. Una volta tornati in negozio ci siamo cimentati, sotto l'occhio e la mano esperta di suo padre, nel produrre una piccola opera sul tornio. Non vedo l'ora che arrivi a casa! Grazie a tutti per la bellissima esperienza!

It was super great to have the possibility to know more about making pottery and even a small lesson to do some pottery :) we got a very good time with Matteo and he was very obliging 👍😊 we had a very funny meeting with his mother before, so it was quite familiar and oh wow do not to forget to mention the maestro Matteos father, which help us to do pottery. 😍 Generally speaking there are no words to describe this wonderful experience and we would like to do this again next time 🥰
