After Mario’s untimely death, the inheritance passed to his daughters, who proudly carried and continue to carry on the business that their father had left them, investing precisely in the Vietri ceramics which still today occupies almost the entire collection of the shop. , rigorously produced and hand painted by skilled local artisans, making it accessible anywhere in the world.
