Ligurian Centre for the History of Ceramic

The Ligurian Center for the History of Ceramics promotes the study and knowledge of ceramics in its various aspects, from the artistic to the archaeological, from the historical to the technological. Annual International Conferences have been organized since 1968, whose timely edited ACTS constitute one of the most important tools at the European level for ceramic studies. The international prestige of the Center is confirmed by the membership in it of European ceramics institutions and a substantial number of Italian and foreign scholars and researchers.

The collection of the Ligurian Center for the History of Ceramics was built up thanks to donations from numerous members (including, in particular, the substantial bequest from Francesco Torterolo) and purchases by the Center itself and consists of 138 pieces, with a predominance of Ligurian material.

Much of the collection is on display, on loan, in the Trucco Museum in Albisola Superiore, while the Savona museum exhibits some Ligurian-made materials that come to complete the picture on Savona ceramics.

Call for papers for the LVII International Ceramics Conference!

Deadline 15 September 2024.

“A Long Middle Ages. Persistence and continuity over the centuries of techniques, morphologies and decorations.”

The theme of this LVII conference is one of those most debated in recent years on the evolution of production techniques, for which a summary of the current situation will be presented here. During the conference, technical, morphological and decorative aspects will be addressed as an indication of the strong conservatism in ceramic production, especially with regard to everyday production.

Last session of the conference free theme.

Texts for the 2023 proceedings to be presented at the 2024 conference must be handed in to the secretariat of the centre by 30 June 2024.
