On 5 and 6 September in Faenza will be held “Made in Italy 2020. Italian ceramics looks to the future”, the exhibition-market of Italian ceramics that will see the participation of 100 ceramists from all over Italy.
La Vecchia Faenza will be among the exhibitors of Piazza del Popolo. We will bring our traditional Faenza majolica to the square, from the pendants that we renew every year in shapes and styles to many elaborate pieces hand painted with Flemish flowers or Raphaelesque, without forgetting our vast assortment of objects for the home and office.
A weekend among the exhibitions of Italian ceramists
The event, which anticipates Argillà Italia (moved to 2021), will see the two squares of the historic center – Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Martiri della Libertà – come to life with the exhibitions of majolica works and objects, in a path between crafts, art, design, household items and fashion accessories. It will be an opportunity to look out over the production of many ceramists from all over Italy, each with their own techniques and styles.
The Faenza weekend will also be animated by concerts, a puppet show for families and the screening of the documentary “Carracci – The silent revolution”. The cultural offer is completed by three exhibitions: the “Grand Tour of Italian Classical Ceramics” at the Municipal Art Gallery (Voltone Molinella 2), the “Nature in quiete – Artist’s glances on the landscape” at the Church of Santa Maria dell’Angelo , (Via SM dell’Angelo) and “Devotional plaques on the way” in terracotta and majolica at the Cathedral (Piazza della Libertà).
