Raffaellesco and Ricco Deruta are the patterns most people associate with Deruta. The two patterns, both developed in the sixteenth century and based upon decorative details from fresco and paintings, are constantly reworked to create subtle variations.
Ricco Deruta re-interprets decorative details of the frescos of Perugino in the Cambio in Perugia.
Perugia is the capital of Umbria and the closest major town to Deruta and has had a major influence on its history over the centuries, with many wars and conflicts in which the town of Deruta had to side with Perugia or its enemies.
Dream of Italy has chosen to feature a range of items in the famous, classical Ricco Deruta style.
