The history of the lustre technique - the application of gold and ruby iridescent layers during a third firing using broom as fuel - is one of the most mysterious and fascinating in the ceramic tradition.‎ It seemingly originated in Mesopotamia, during the 9th century.‎ After the Islamic invasion it spread throughout North Africa to Spain.‎ It finally reached Italy, where some of the most important Renaissance artists, including the celebrated Mastrogiorgio from Gubbio, created incredible masterpieces.‎ In the 17th century this technique slowly disappeared.‎ It was Paolo Rubboli in Gualdo Tadino who rediscovered the lustre technique, using the information that in 1558 Cipriano Piccolpasso had collected in his book The Three Books of Potter’s Art.‎ Nowadays, Maurizio Tittarelli Rubboli, Paolo Rubboli’s great-grandson, continues the family tradition and has created this fine collection of lustre tiles specifically for our company, combining the traditional with the contemporary.‎
