The permanent exhibitions at the International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza have been expanded thanks to the great new section devoted to 20th century ceramics which allow the public to admire the more organic re-arrangement of Italian ceramics produced in the past century.
The Section of 20th century Italian Ceramics covers a area 2.000 squared meters wide and collects more than 900 ceramics selected among the rich and precious collection of the Museum.
Italy and Faenza, that are fully represented in the new section, played a fundamental role in modern and contemporary ceramics; the new architectural spaces allow the artists and their precious creations a wide ranging vision: from the rich Art Nouveau by Galileo Chini up to the perfect contemporary creations by Bertozzi and Casoni.
The developing of ceramic art is shown by the works of Arturo Martini, Gio Ponti, Tullio D'Albissola, Angelo Biancini, Nanni Valentini, Lucio Fontana, Carlo Zauli and other great masters.
To enrich the collection pictures, marble sculptures and bronze have been included in the exhibition testifying the multifaceted art of the 20th century Italian artists. It is a way to underline the essential relation of ceramic art with the great artistic movements in which today it plays a fundamental role.
