For the first time the MIC-Museo Internazionale delle ceramiche in Faenza hosts the works donated by the scholar and collector Giorgio Levi. An exhibition of 35 pieces decorated with airbrush from the 1930s. The first examples of the airbrush technique applied to ceramics date back to the modernist climate of the Weimar Republic and the Bauhaus in Germany.
