The entire collection can be seen on Flickr.


The museum preserves a collection of works created within its workshops, built in recent years through encounters with contemporary artists and the material of the local tradition, ceramics.

Established in 2004 with the donation of Mathieu Mercier, it has been expanding every year with equally prestigious names but also thanks to pieces by young artists, and it is constantly growing, as part of a collection of extremely heterogeneous works, as a testament to the versatility that even a material as traditional as ceramics can acquire upon encountering the contemporary.

The collection includes the works of:

Yuri Ancarani, Anemoi, Salvatore Arancio, Sergia Avveduti, Marco Basta / Alessandro Di Pietro / Michele Gabriele / Andrea Romano / Jonathan Vivacqua, Lorenza Boisi, Pierpaolo Campanini, Gianni Caravaggio, David Casini, T-Yong Chung, Lorenzo Commisso, Natascia Fenoglio & Patrick Tuttofuoco, Christian Frosi & Diego Perrone, Alberto Garutti, Giovanni Giaretta, Francesco Gennari, Eva Marisaldi, Simon McGrath, Mathieu Mercier, Maurizio Mercuri, Luca Monterastelli, Jonathan Monk, Ornaghi & Prestinari, Chiara Pergola, Marco Samorè, Daniel Silver, Luca Trevisani, Davide Valenti, Daniele Veronesi, Sislej Xhafa, Italo Zuffi.

Due to limited space, the collection is only partially set up for public display.
