Sassuolo is the main pole of Italian ceramic industry. The "Palazzina della Casiglia", once Assopiastrelle's seat, houses the Research Centre of Italian ceramic tiles industry: the exhibition shows the artistic, technological and commercial evolution of this craftmade product. In Sassuolo you can admire the magnificent Ducal Palace, a jewel of Baroc culture in the North of Italy. It was sumptuosly frescoed by Jean Boulanger, the official painter of Este's court that worked together with some of the main painters coming from Bologna.
