“Buongiorno Ceramica !” returns, in its eighth edition, on 21 and 22 May 2022, and this time, as in previous years, it will also take place across Europe as Good Morning Ceramics ! 

Founded in 2015 as a “widespread festival of Italian ceramics”, it is a two-day event (taking place in the penultimate weekend of May) enabling visitors to discover Italian art&craft ceramics, cities, artisans, artists and museums, spanning from ancient traditions to contemporary expressions.

Devised and designed by AiCC (the Italian Association of 45 Cities of Ceramics), it is a real journey into Italy’s world of beauty and artistic craftsmanship. In this direction, after the past two online editions, the event is emphasizing the “new day”, with concepts of recovery and rebirth, by creating an extraordinary travelling celebration of ceramics.

In addition, in recent years, Buongiorno Ceramica! has become increasingly international, thanks to the support and interest of AEuCC – the European Group of Cities of Ceramics, with the creation of Good Morning Ceramics!, a similar festival that is progressively being adopted by many European countries, such as Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic, Malta, Croatia, Slovenia, Poland and Turkey.

This year, the events will take place throughout Italy, mainly in the 45 Cities of Ceramics but also in other cities and workshops taking part, from north to south, and in many European cities: exhibitions and museums open until late, special openings and guided tours in ceramic workshops and ateliers, where artisans and artists will exhibit their production and demonstrate shaping, decorating and firing techniques.

There will also be workshops, demonstrations and activities specially for children, in addition to performances.

Creativity is welcomed, and all cities and ceramic artists are totally free to create their own events.

Buongiorno Ceramica! is a project that has been promoted and organized since 2015 by AiCC – Italian Association of Ceramic Cities, and that has expanded to become Good Morning Ceramics! with coordination by AEuCC – European Grouping of Cities of Ceramics.
