The gallery has been operating for about 30 years in the production of artistic ceramics and as 700 years ago, only creates ceramics made ​​and hand painted. This shop is a little jewel in the commercial landscape of Montelupo. The owner Salvatore Mirenda, creates objects with the ancient technique of the lathe, the activity that takes place over 35 years, after he inherited from his father Sebastian, a master potter. Salvatore continues the family tradition of working with clay, enriching it with new shapes and decorations. Our production is not limited to the reproduction of classical works, but adds that touch of creativity, originality and quality that distinguishes our work. The gallery offers the opportunity 'to order and buy directly from the factory or via email.

Since our first visit to this shop three years ago, when we ordered several custom tiles, we have since moved on to larger pieces made to our order. We have a gorgeous wall clock and an antique roof tile painted in collaboration with their artists. Reasonably priced and custom made, how can you go wrong? The items were shipped without... More

We didn't go to Montelupo planning on buying pottery, but we ended up with a bunch. Matteo and his mother were in the shop and very helpful as we mixed and matched items until we were satisfied. We bought a complete set with serving pieces for 8 people at half the cost at home. The others in our group did... More

A fantastic place - beautiful ceramics and the nicest people. I have just bought plates and got it sent to Denmark. Two boxes, carefully packed, and the delivery only took two days. Everything was perfect and a very personal experience from start to end. Next year we´ll be back on our vacation in Toscana...:)

This is a "must do" on a trip to Tuscany. The town is not on most tourist maps but you should definately take time. My wife and I saw La Galleria on Trip Advisor and I went expecting a bit of a boring trip. It is not at all dull. Seriously, go there. Marco, one of the family who runs... More

I visited the shop again this week. The son who was 9 at the time of my last visit was working in the... More

Since we visited this place some years ago it's hard for us to imagine Tuscany without La Galleria. The new great design every year will not let you exit this place with empty hands! :-)

Really amazing experience. Beautiful pottery and beautiful people. We were made very welcome and felt part of the family. I am very much looking forward to getting our shipment of beautiful pottery. It will be the best of Tuscany all the way in Melbourne, Australia. Will be a precious reminder of our trip. Thank you

Do not shop in main centers like Florence! The prices are much better here and you are personally meeting the creators! We stopped here based on the tripadvisor reviews for some pottery to celebrate our recent wedding. The prices were well worth the detour! The artistry and selection were amazing. We will be having some more stuff shipped in the... More

This shop is a beautiful liitle shop for artisanal pottery! Everything was amazing! The shop owner and her son were very warm and welcoming. We bought several pieces of which they shipped and arrived in perfect condition. I recommend this place highly. We loved Italy!
