Ceramics lovers unite! If you’ve ever wanted to get an idea on how the whole world since antiquity has dealt with making clay into useful and artistic containers, the Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza is the largest museum of its kind.

I’ve wandered the museum. It’s immense. No, it’s likely I haven’t seen but a fraction of what’s there, but I came away impressed anyway.

Modern stuff? Yeah, it’s there. And it’ll make you wander how big they make kilns these days. Just look:
