The first issue of the new series of insights into the heritage of Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza is dedicated to classical and Roman ceramics.
Edited by Andrea Gaucci and Anna Gamberini, the guide retraces the new updated and expanded setup, proposing a path according to historical-cultural thematic areas and specific surveys to testify to the constant dialogue between Greece and Italy during the first millennium B.C. Furthermore, functional- thematic insights are proposed for the production of ceramics, and more in general of clay objects, during the Roman dominion.
