Michele Esposito, originally from Grottaglie (Ta), in the mid-thirties is called in Sicily to run the School of Ceramics of Santo Stefano di Camastra in the province of Messina and here opens, together with his brother Ciro, a manufactory with the name "Esposito Ceramiche ".
In their factory the Esposito study and reuse the ancient color palettes of the Apulian and Sicilian tradition, giving impetus to a resumption of the ceramic activity of the area.
The manufacture, whose production is parallel to that of the school, realizes, in the Sixties a series of interesting ceramics (vases, bottles, etc.) anthropomorphic some of which are conserved today in the Didactic Museum of Ceramics of the Regional Institute of Art of Santo Stefano in Camastra.
The manufacture, directed by the heirs of Michele and Ciro Esposito, is still active under the name "Duca di Camastra"

N.B .: there is another ceramic manufacture, active in Capodimonte, near Naples, called "Esposito", managed by the brothers Francesco and Ernesto Esposito.
