AEuCC groups together the Associations of Cities of Ceramics in Europe, based in Italy (AiCC), France (AfCC), Spain (AeCC), Romania (ArCC), Germany (AgCC), Poland (AplCC) and Czech Republic (AczCC), comprising at present 119 cities with an ancient ceramic tradition in Europe.


Founding members are Italy, France, Spain and Romania.

The mission of AEuCC is to develop territorial and transnational cooperation in the field of Ceramic Art and craft, mainly to create social and economic cohesion, by developing projects and services for the ceramic sector stakeholders.

AEuCC is open to new members, which need to be “associations of cities of ceramics” (at least three cities from the same country). In order to enlarge the EGTC, the cities willing to create a new association are granted “observer status” and are allowed to participate in the AEuCC works.
