The Ceramics Town Museum, much loved and very popular with Nove’s people, illustrates a large variety of styles, decorations and materials used for ceramics production in Nove, Bassano and the whole Vicenza area from the XVII century up to these days. The well balanced division into time periods grants a varied view of the old production as a whole, together with the work of distinguished living artists. On display are also items from celebrated workshops in Venice, Treviso, Este, other Italian regions (Tuscany, Lombardy, Trentino, Liguria) and abroad (Germany, France, the Netherlands). One of the most prestigious work on display is Vaso con Figure Femminili (Vase with Female Figures) by Pablo Picasso, dated 1950.
