29th April 2021 at 19:30 BST on Zoom

The International Museum of Ceramics, is located in Faenza (in the district of Ravenna) and it is the largest collection in the world of handcrafted ceramics.

Founded in 1908, after a great International Exhibition dedicated to Evangelista Torricelli, the Museum has continued to expand and is also becoming an important centre for ceramic culture.

In addition to rooms with artifacts, including antique floor tiles, documenting the history and evolution of pottery, every year the museum hosts temporary exhibitions and organizes the “Premio Faenza” (Faenza Award) dedicated to new artists with the objective of enhancing the most advanced research in ceramic, between contemporary art and design.
