The name of the town itself has become synonymous with majolica ware in many languages, like French ("faïance ") and English ("faience"), to remind us of the importance all over Europe of Faenza, still at the forefront in the industry of this sector.
The Faenza majolica
The historical production of Faenza majolica ware is recognised as one of the highest moments in artistic creativity in ceramics. Now, the art of ceramics can be experienced in the beautiful International Museum of Ceramics, housing one of the most interesting existing collections, with examples from all over the world and of every historical period. The collection ranges from classic amphorae to the modern works by Chagall and Picasso, with a rich section for the ceramics of Faenza made during the Renaissance. In September and October, international events for artistic ceramics, both modern and ancient, attract artists, collectors, and ceramics enthusiasts in Faenza.
