A luxurious retention of a classic Tuscan design from Montelupo Fiorentino
The central motif of our all new Majolica Leone features the renown “Leone di Montelupo” (The Montelupo’s Lion) that, surrounded by its heraldic stemma, has been for centuries the “emblems” of the “Montelupo Fiorentino” area, where the original Tuscan Majolica are manufactured since the XV Century.
The “Leone di Montelupo” insignia is encircled by traditional medieval scroll works, and the gorgeous red surrounding it the is known as Rosso di Montelupo, that derives its name from the mysterious red pigment employed in its decoration since the medieval era.

Montelupo Fiorentino is the center of the production of Florentine majolica, located just on the outskirts of Florence and the world known Chianti region.
Montelupo was founded at the end of the Early Middle Ages with the construction of a castle.
The Florentine Republic, which took over the territory in 1204, rebuilt and enlarged the original military settlement.
