Once upon a time in the charming village of Vietri sul Mare, nestled along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast, there stood a remarkable ceramic oven. This magical oven possessed the extraordinary power to transform ordinary clay masterpieces into vibrant works of art. As the talented artisans carefully painted their creations, the oven would come alive, reaching scorching temperatures. The intense heat allowed the radiant colors to fuse seamlessly with the ceramic, creating breathtaking designs that captured the essence of this enchanting coastal paradise. Within its fiery embrace, all my cherished creations found their truest form, forever preserving the vibrant spirit of Vietri sul Mare.
The story of Anastasia is shrouded in mystery and legend, and her figure enchants the imagination of many people. Described as a woman with an enchanting face, piercing blue eyes and ebony-black hair, Anastasia has always attracted the attention of those who meet her eyes.
The story goes that Anastasia came from an aristocratic family of Russian descent during a period of great turmoil and change in her country’s history. In the year 1917, the Russian Revolution led to the fall of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. It is believed that Anastasia was one of the tsar’s daughters, the youngest of the four princesses, and that she escaped the tragic end that befell her family.
After her escape, Anastasia was lost to history and many doubts surround her fate. While some claimed that she died with her family, others claimed that she managed to escape and hide under a secret identity. This fuelled numerous theories and legends about her life after the Revolution.
In later years, several women emerged who claimed to be Anastasia, but their claims were never fully accepted or proven.
It was only in 1991, when the remains of the Romanov family were discovered in a mass grave, that concrete answers began to emerge.
However, it was not until 2007, thanks to further investigations and DNA tests, that the identity of the remains of Anastasia and her family could be confirmed. It was discovered that Anastasia and her younger brother, Prince Aleksej, were buried in a separate grave, thus strengthening the theories that Anastasia had initially survived.
Anastasia’s story has become a symbol of hope and mystery for many, and has inspired numerous novels, films and works of art. Her beauty, with her charming face and intense blue eyes, is often depicted in these works, creating an enduring image of the mysterious woman who may have survived the tragedy of her royal family.
Despite her tragic story and the mystery surrounding her life, Anastasia Romanov remains an enigmatic icon, a woman with black hair and blue eyes who continues to fascinate and inspire the imagination of many.
"One night, the fishermen of Vietri prepare for a special catch. They wear ceremonial clothes and carry lanterns that illuminate their pottery. They set sail silently and cast their nets. Surprisingly, the nets are filled with bright and colourful fish. Joyfully, they return to the village at dawn, bringing with them an abundance of fish and the beauty of the night sea. Their pottery tells the story of that magical night of fishing."
The designs depicting the ‘Vietrese Rivisitato’ are characterised by a unique, stylised style. They use classic colours, such as shades of blue, green and light blue, which recall the sea. The shades are delicate and harmonious, creating an effect of depth. The designs present stylised shapes with flowing, neat lines, while the details are well defined. These paintings express a fusion of tradition and innovation, depicting Vietri sul Mare fishermen and sea creatures with grace and dignity.

In the picturesque village of Vietri sul Mare, nestled along the enchanting Amalfi Coast, two souls named Francesco and Luisa found themselves entangled in a love that society deemed forbidden. Their hearts beat as one, and their presence together radiated an undeniable magic.
- Francesco, a gifted potter, molded clay with an artist’s touch, infusing each creation with his longing for Luisa. His pieces spoke volumes of their untamed passion, capturing the essence of their love within delicate curves and vibrant colors.
- Luisa, with her grace and beauty, embodied the spirit of the Amalfi Coast. Her laughter danced along the cerulean waves, and her smile lit up the narrow cobblestone streets. Every glance exchanged between her and Francesco revealed the depth of their affection.
But destiny had other plans for them. Their families, guided by the weight of tradition, forbade their union, tearing them apart and casting them into separate paths.
Yet, the connection between Francesco and Luisa refused to be severed. They sought solace in stolen moments, meeting clandestinely at the shores of Vietri sul Mare. In the moon’s tender glow, they would hold each other, their love igniting a fire that consumed their souls.
The village whispered of their love, and their clandestine meetings became legendary tales of devotion…
