A group of maiolica factories in Umbria, founded in the early 16th century, which produced outstanding wares decorated with istoriato painting. Nicola Pellipario began to develop this decoration 1510–15 on numerous plates and dishes painted with mythological scenes and became one of the leading painters in this manner. After the mid-16th century the factories went into decline and produced inferior wares until the mid-18th century.
