Buon Natale Ceramica (Merry Christmas Ceramics) is the widespread Christmas celebration of AiCC – Italian Association of Ceramic Cities.

Every year, between December and the first days of January, the 45 member Italian municipalities recognised as having an ancient ceramic tradition take part in the initiative with a rich calendar of events under the distinguishing symbol of ceramics.

Artists and artisans from the ceramic’s cities spread all over Italy participate with various initiatives: from nativity scenes, the typical and popular Italian “Presepe”, and Christmas trees made of ceramics to temporary shops, exhibitions, installations, live shows and workshops dedicated to the festivities, set up in squares, churches, museums or in the ceramists’ workshops.

Buon Natale Ceramica is the wish for a happy festive season from the cities of ceramics and Italian
ceramists, towards a 2023 full of projects aimed at promoting ceramics and the excellence of Made in Italy.
