Faenza

4.2
Faenza is an Italian city and comune, in the province of Ravenna, Emilia-Romagna, situated 50km southeast of Bologna.Faenza is noted for its manufacture of majolica-ware glazed earthenware pottery, known from the name of the town as faience.GeographyFaenza, at the foot of the first Subapennine hills, is surrounded by an agricultural region including vineyards in the hills, and cultivated land with traces of the ancient Roman land-division system, and fertile market gardens in the plains. In the nearby green valleys of the rivers Samoggia and Lamone there are great number of 18th and 19th century stately homes, set in extensive grounds or preceded by long cypress-lined driveways.HistoryAccording to mythology, the name of the first settlement, Faoentia, had Etruscan and Celtic roots, meaning in Latin "Splendeo inter deos" or "I shine among the gods," in modern English. The very name, coming from the Romans who developed this center under the name of Faventia, has become synonymous with ceramics (majolica) in various languages, including French (faïence) and English (faience).
Faenza is in Province of Ravenna. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Faenza trip itinerary using our Italy vacation builder tool .
