museum is located at the headquarters of Confindustria Ceramica, the Association of Italian Ceramics in Sassuolo, Italy.
The visitor enters the hall from the left of the main entrance and circles the hall, in a
clockwise direction. There are nineteen numbered exhibits.
Each exhibit covers a different period in the history and
development of the ceramic tile industry. Included in each
exhibit are detailed descriptions of the items displayed
identifying the manufacturer, designer, type of tile,
technique utilized, size and date of manufacture. The
donor of each item is identified.
The Exhibition Hall was planned to permit an expansion of
particular portions of the exhibit to provide special
coverage to particular periods of interest. The current
display covers the entire range of tile types, production
techniques, historical periods and artistic and design
styles. The planners of the exhibit feel that this first
collection has successfully encompassed the rich and
varied history of the tile industry.
