Dove Viaggi, anno 22 No 3 (Marzo 2012), pp 64 / 66, "Per Gaiole in Chianti, il tratto è breve: il borgo [di Radda in Chianti] svetta sopra un colle coperto in cipressi. Appena fuori dal centro, ecco l'atelier Ceramiche Rampini: disegni dipinti a mano ispirati alla tradizione rinascimentale medicea e a motivi contemporanei. Nell'atelier si seguono le fasi della lavorazione e nello showroom si acquistano vasi, brocchi, e preziosi servizi da tavola." ('It is only a short distance to Gaiole in Chianti: the village [Radda in Chianti] is situated on top of a hill, covered with cypresses. Just outside the center is the atelier Ceramiche Rampini: handpainted decors, inspired by the Medici Renaissance traditions and contemporary motives. In the atelier one can follow the different stages of work and in the showroom one can buy urns, jugs, and very special table sets.')

Reid Bramblett, Top 10 Tuscany, DK Eyewitness Travel, © 2002, 2007 Dorling Kindersley, London, put Rampini on the first place in their 'Top 10 Shops and Cafés' (Beyond Florence) page:

"One of the best Italian ceramicists, producing classy and whimsical designs. You can buy anything from a single piece to a full dinner service."

and in the 'Tuscany: Practical info' overview page:

"Italy is renowned for its hand-painted ceramics. Tuscany’s pottery tradition is among the best in Italy. You can find everything from Richard Ginori porcelain and high-class Rampini designs (see Ceramiche Rampini, near Radda) to traditional rustic patterns in Montepulciano, Siena and Cortona, and the more prosaic terracotta production in Impruneta."
