Faenza: the art of majolica


The city of Faenza is very famous for one of the most ancient and sublime arts in the world: the art of ceramics, and, above all, for the special and enameled art called “Majolica”. At each corner of the old town there are artisans' shops, with a lot of special crafts' laboratories on the back. The ceramics of Faenza have always been one of the great traditions of Italian creativity, together with the famous white ceramics. The ceramics of Faenza had a period of decline in 1908 but, thanks to an expert, the most important one in 1900, the ceramics came back to its splendor. The International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza was also created.
