The “Lodovico Coccapani” ceramic museum in the centre of Calcinaia is set inside the building that hosts the ancient wood-burning furnace. This stove was built by Luigi Giuseppe, Ercole Ranieri and Andrea Sigismondo Coccapani, in the second half of 18th century next to north-western corner tower of the medieval castle.
The Coccapani family came from Sassuolo (Emilia Romagna), they were potters. This historical building was restored by the local municipality in 2015. Guided tours and workshops lead the visitor to learn the history, the products, the furnaces of the past time.
