The City

You can find us in Faenza, internationally acknowledged for its ancient ceramic tradition, thanks to its finely decorated majolica (also called “Faenza”) and to the work of generations of artists and artisans throughout the centuries.
From here you can easily reach culturally relevant cities such as Firenze, Ravenna and Venezia.
