The Raphaelesque (Second half of the 16th Century)

Decorative pattern inspired by the grotesque painting used by Raffello in the frescoes of Vatican rooms.
It is made up of minute subjects such as panoplies, puttoes, chimaeras, and trophies of ancient arms, musical instruments and festoons, with a slight use of shoots.
Whilst polychrome, the dominant colours are yellow and dark brown on a very white background (Urbino Raphaelesque) or on a blue background (Faenza Raphaelesque).

The Ministry of Culture has recognized the Padovani Majolica Stamp of Origin and Quality: a prestigious award that very few shops in Italy receive
