Magna Graecia, End of IV century B.C. An Apulian red figured little crater decorated on side A) with the profile figure of a young women, she wears a kekryphalos around her hair and luxury jewels; on side B) a standing youth completely wrapped in his himathion, meander under the lip and palmettes under the handles.
During the late fifth and fourth centuries AD, an intense production of particular ceramic objects, known as "Apulian red-figured pottery", is attested in Apulia, a region in the Southern Italy. The main feature of this pottery typology is related to the particular decorations: red-coloured figures that stand out from a "black gloss" background, on which white and/or yellow-coloured decorative motifs are painted sometimes. If the production technology seems to inherit the consolidated acknowledges of the Attic ceramists about red-coloured figures wares, the Apulian pottery presents peculiar stylistic and decorative features. This pottery was mostly produced for local markets. Only few pieces have been found outside Southern Italy and Sicily. The first workshops were founded in the mid-5th century BC by Attic potters. Soon, local craftsmen were trained and the thematic and formal dependence on Attic vases overcome. Towards the end of the century, the distinctive "ornate style" and "plain style" developed in Apulia.
