The golden age of the Majolica of the Duchy of UrbinoUrbino's fame in connection to majolica begins in the 16th century and is particularly linked to the storied production that in Urbino acquired extraordinary importance and space, perhaps also due to the fact that the definitive return of Francesco Maria della Rovere in 1521 was followed by the establishment of a refined court with important affinities. As a result, the local majolica artisans never wanted for local custom: sideboards and decorative pieces were requested in great numbers and at various qualities and prices, depicting exotic scenes inspired by other countries, mythology and fables (paesi, fabuli et historie, in the words of their contemporaries). Famous ceramicists thrived: Nicola da Urbino, Guido Durantino and Guido di Merlino are the most famous names among the many artisans who had their own workshop. And then there were masses of kilnmen, throwers and decorators, more or less talented, who worked on contract, often on the occasion of large commissions that required particular effort.
