Giuseppe Cassetta was born in Vietri sul Mare in 1894 and as a child, only nine years old (1903) he worked with father and uncles at the pottery of Giovanni Antonio Tajani. In 1927 following disagreements with the owner, he began work at "ICS" , owned by Max Melamerson. During the years 1927 and 1942 Casetta worked with such artists as Richard Dölker, Margarethe Tewalt and Giovannino Carrano, the brothers Vincenzo and Salvatore Procida, Guido Gambone and others. After World War II Giuseppe returned to Vietri and worked at the Avallone pottery and then at Cioffi. He continued to work with clay until his death in 1985 at age 91."
