Montelupo Fiorentino, an interesting village on the outskirts of Florence

I took a recent day trip to Montelupo, just outside of Florence. I’d heard about the long ceramic tradition of Montelupo and wanted to learn more.

This impressive sign, made of ceramic tiles, welcomes one into Montelupo at the local train station. Already one is aware of the ceramic accent of the Borgo.

A sign in the center of the village tells the story of the history of ceramics here.

I’ve never seen a prettier police station than the one in Montelupo!
