Faenza, Piazza del Popolo
Faenza is a small town with nearly 60000 inhabitants in the Emilia Romana, aouth-east of Bologna. In the Renaissance the city became very famous for its elaborate pottery, which had been exported to many European countries. The central square "Piazza del Popolo" has its origins in Roman times. The development to its present appearance began in the 15th century when the loggia of Palazzo Manfredi was built and ended around 400 years later.
