Here are some addresses of ceramic schools in Faenza and some courses - but I do
not know whether they include a travel program or not.

I-48018 Faenza. Emidio Galassi, who is a very well known ceramicist in Italy,
offers summer courses every year.

Firenze. Courses in ceramics, painting, restauration etc. raku courses

ceramic restauration 2-6 months.

You can find that kind of information in my guide for travelling potters. We are
working on a version in english language and following the clayart list for some
months I feel there is a real need for that. General travelling information (not
just a list of potteries) is requested again and again. Everybody willing to
share is invited to participate!
The german version of the guide can be found (not yet completed, sorry) at
