" I can't count the times I've been spoilt for choice when selecting a souvenir of capri, especially a gift. Well, once you've had a look at what this wonderful shop has to offer, you will shout: Eureka! I've found it!.." Curzio Malaparte used these words, from an unplablished piece for the magazine "capri segreta" in 1954, to recommend a shop in Anacapri actually called Eureka.

This ceramic workshop features an astonishing selections of articles it produces itself, pieces ispired by Capri's famous spots, climate and folklore which display impeccable taste and sophistication in their interpretations of the island warmth and radiant beauty.

In fact, Eureka's artistic pieces and decorative elements for interiors and exteriors like vases, panels,tiles and capodimonte porcelain, grace not only the island's most exclusive homes but also those of rich and famous the world over.

The brightly coloured , highly refined ceramics on show in Eureka's windows mark the starting point of any serious shopper 's stroll down Via Orlandi, the place to shop in Anacapri, and they " decorate " the way into the heart of the island's "second town" with all its history - not the least of which is the tradition that the Pollicino family has handed down over fifty years, with its precious artistic ceramics.

"quante volte abbiamo constatato l'imbarazzo della scelta nel decidersi a voler acquistare il ricordo di Capri,specialmente se da portare in dono. Ebbene, scrutando l'esposizione del vasto assortimento di questo bel magazzino , voi invece esclamerete : Eureka, ho trovato!..." Con queste parole , nel 1954, Curzio Malaparte in un inedito della rivista "capri segreta" definiva un negozio di Anacapri chiamato proprio Eureka. L'atelier di ceramica dei fratelli Pollicino espone infatti una vasta gamma di articoli di produzione propria, ispirati ai luoghi, al clima e al folklore dell'isola dimostrando gusto e raffinatezza nell'esprimere la solarità e il calore di questa terra. Non è raro infatti trovare i pezzi artistici e i decori d'arredo per interni ed esterni, quali vasi,pannelli, piastrelle e porcellane della scuola di capodimonte nelle dimore più prestigiose dell'isola, ma anche in case di personaggi famosi sparse in ogni angolo del mondo. Le coloratissime e raffinate ceramiche di eureka aprono la passeggiata lungo la strada dello shopping di anacapri, via orlandi, inpreziosendo con la loro vista quel tratto di strada che introduce nel cuore di anacapri antica, custode della storia e della tradizione che la famiglia Pollicino trasferisce da oltre cinquant'anni nelle sue preziose ceramiche artistiche.
