Terracotta has been a part of Tuscan art for centuries, notably during the Renaissance with the construction, for instance, of Brunelleschi’s beautiful dome of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. For Tuscany, the art of terracotta is both an important part of its heritage and a primary element of its cultural identity.
