Faenza is an important Romagna town, famous all over the world for the production of highly refined ceramics. The name "Faenza" has in fact become synonymous with the word "ceramic" in many other languages, including English (Faience) and French (Faïence). Of Roman origin, the city was an important political and cultural meeting point in the Middle Ages thanks to the leadership of the Manfredi Lordship. Today, the city stands out for its rich offer of art and gastronomy.
As already mentioned, the heart of Faenza lies in the art of ceramics, in fact the MIC, the International Museum of Ceramics, has been one of the main museums in the world dedicated to it since 1908 and hosts works from every time and place from the Americas to the Far East, up to the masterpieces of local and Italian ceramic culture. A visit to this museum represents an engaging immersion in history and tradition that still binds and represents Faenza.
