The artisan tradition of Campania is very ancient: the first examples date back to the centuries preceding Christianity, to continue with the finds returned to light in the cities buried by Vesuvius, with medieval majolica, sumptuous silvers and marble inlays of the Baroque, the processing of coral, crib art, wooden inlay.
Until the birth, in the eighteenth century, of the royal factories commissioned by the Bourbons, the Capodimonte Porcelain Factory and the San Leucio silk factory.
The nineteenth century marks the entry of Campania into the field of weapons processing, railway systems, mechanical and naval industries. The role of the Region will be no less in the twentieth century: a rigorous school of industrial design, drawing on the large deposit of historical memories of the past, re-invents an international identity for Campania manufacturers, in a production landscape that now goes from fashion design to aerospace industry.
