venice glass week
The Venice glass week is about to begin!
This is a tribute to glass, to its art and design. Over 140 events will be held from 10 – 17 September 2017. The first international Festival devoted to glass art will be held in conjunction with the 57° Art Biennale, and will involve several venues, including the typical Venetian streets and canals. The exhibits are patronized by ancient glass brands from Venice, which have preserved this amazing tradition up to our days.
In addition to glass from Murano, which will be the key player thanks to many furnaces open to visitors, and great creativity from Italy and abroad; moreover, workshops and conferences are expected, educational activities and theme dinners.
This amazing event is organized by Comune di Venezia, Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, Fondazione Cini/Le stanze del Vetro, Istituto Veneto and Consorzio Promovetro Murano.
