The Italian Association Towns of Ceramics (Associazione Italiana Città della Ceramica – A.I.C.C.) was set up in 1999. It is a non-profit association that aims at creating a national network of towns with a ceramics activities history. So that the single member communities can establish relations with reciprocal exchange of information and co-operation in the activities of support to their ceramics tradition, as well as support to a better knowledge of these activities both at a national and international level.
To this end, the Association intends to work in co-operation with state and regional authorities, with local authorities, with ceramics producers, with bodies, foundations, institutions and different kinds of associations that are interested- both for organisational and statute reasons- in the knowledge, study, promotion and enhancement of Italian ceramics.
In other words it aims at the creation of a pact of friendship among the centres with an old ceramics tradition, availing itself of the contribution of all members to reach the above-mentioned goals.
The AICC is based in Faenza
