Carlo Zauli Museum

The Carlo Zauli Museum, founded in 2002, by the will of the Zauli family, explores and disseminates contemporary art in all its languages through its collections and various cultural activities, with particular attention to ceramics. It is located in Faenza in the premises that belonged to Carlo Zauli since 1949, one of the most representative sculptors of the 20th century, whose work and history it promotes. It is a real journey that began in 2002, the year of the death of Carlo Zauli, which the museum continues to plan, bringing the intact and very topical poetic message from one place to another.

YESTERDAY: In 1949 Zauli bought, together with three fellow students, the laboratory of the ceramist Mario Morelli, housed in the stables of the convent of San Francesco.

TODAY: A space for both exhibition and cultural production. The museum hosts two permanent collections: one dedicated to Carlo Zauli and one composed of the works of contemporary artists and carries out conservation, archiving and dissemination of the work of the Faenza sculptor through the management of the Archive, traveling exhibitions, publications, events to him. dedicated. Collaborations with other cultural activities in the city and numerous artist residency projects are intense.

The museum is a private institution.
