“Here, it’s like a god, that has built with huge stone blocks his home”.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Between the Cilento and the Amalfi Coast arises Paestum, city of the Magna Greece considered by the Unesco World Heritage Site. Also, named Poseidonia in honor of Poseidon, god of the sea, is rich of history. Paestum has a long ceramic tradition, as testify the exhibits guarded in the archeological museum.  The ceramics of Paestum are several which we have inherited: from the distinguished neck amphora, up to the bell crater. In a place, which is the only one in the world, where the sparkling sun enlightens the three Doric temples known as Basilica, Poseidon’s and Cerere’s Temples, there’s the tomb of the plunger, the only example of the painting of the Magna Greece. The famous painting which photographs the moment in which the man is launching himself in the waves, has been proposed again and realized by the artist G. Cassetta for the Ceramica Francesco De Maio.
