Background: Sardinian students were filmed, November 14, learning the secrets of one of the island's oldest art - the art of ceramics.
Pictured at a government training at the potter's wheel, the shape of which has remained unchanged since the beginnings of the island industry - believed to date back to the thirteenth century.
Training in this traditional art includes instruction on contemporary design.
The centre has an eye on business as well as design. Over the last few years, ceramics have been one of the most popular tourist "buys" in Italy.
