Good type places to visit in Italy and Morocco?

Hi everyone,

I'm going to many cities in Italy and Morocco next year for 1 month,
Can anyone recommend: museums, libraries, ruins, type foundries, etc...?
I'm very much interested in type, print history, calligraphy, lettering, art & history in general.

Thank you!

    In Italy, consider the Tipoteca working museum in Cornuda, Treviso. Their @tipotecaitaliana Instagram account shows some of their collection.

    If you go to Florence, you may want to check out the Renaissance inscriptions on the choir lofts of Donatello and Luca della Robbia at the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, and perhaps track down the tomb inscriptions at Santa Croce that inspired Zapf to create Optima. 
    @Antonio Cavedoni would maybe be the best source to answer this question (especially about the modern and current scenes).
