Faenza (ancient Faventia), a town of Italy, 20 miles S.W. of Ravenna. It is said to have given the name "faience" to the glazed and ornamented earthenware that was first made there about the close of the 13th century, but it is a curious coincidence that Fayence in France was very early the seat of the same industry. The town possesses a citadel, a cathedral, and several interesting churches. It is the birthplace of Torricelli, the physicist.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
