The V&A has the greatest collection of Italian Renaissance maiolica in the world. This exhibition explores the extraordinary imagery of this revolutionary type of tin-glazed pottery painted with a dazzling palette of colours that never fades and which was treasured by popes and princes. It also highlights maiolica’s many uses including the important social rituals surrounding courtship, marriage and birth.
