Artisans of Ceramics for Three Generations

It was 1948 when our grandfather Antonio Ficola founded in Deruta the first company producing ceramic kilns for firing and machinery for ceramic products. Later, with the help of his sons Leno and Fausto, he took a new path of expansion of the production: strengthened by the experience in the field of ceramics, they started another branch of the company for the production of ceramics and tables made of volcanic stone, indoor and outdoor furniture. Our father Leno Ficola will then open to the international market North America, France, Germany, England, Benelux, up to Japan and Oceania.

The largest ceramic vases in the world

In the early 1990s our father built a special ceramic kiln, over 5 meters high and he made the 2 largest ceramic vases in the world. With the construction of the new factory building, Grandi Maioliche Ficola was born for the production of majolica tables and artistic ceramics.
