Exhibition in the historical center of Faenza

Faenza is one of the world capitals of majolica, hence the term Faïance, that is to say, the ceramic technique that made it famous. Besides the wealth and fame for ceramics, the city is known for its beautiful architecture and the central position, close to some cities of art such as Florence, Bologna, Ravenna and Venice. The architectural splendor reached its peak during the Renaissance and during the government of the Manfredi family with the construction of the cathedral, the Palazzo del Popolo and the monumental Piazza del Popolo. The whole city has ancient Renaissance, eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century buildings some built during the papal domination and the Napoleonic era. The city is rich in mysterious cellars or underground, frescoed halls, noble courtyards and many small churches, and different corners of particular beauty.

In this architectural setting, the FACC chooses spaces for the final exhibitions of artistic residences. According to the specificities of the artists’ projects, the stage is preferred to present the exhibitions. Many of these spaces are already meeting places for various musical, theatrical and literature events.
During the exhibition the artist may decide to sell his own works.
