Vasanello, a tiny village along the Amerina Way whose red and rough tuff walls are part of an agricultural and natural environment of rare beauty, that frames a rupestrian past: initially Etruscan-Roman, then medieval, crystallized in the archaeological remnants all around. The beauties of the territory are accompanied by the ceramic industry testimonies: a tradition that Vasanello silently have been holding for almost 2500 years.
