VENICE GLASS WEEK 2020 from 5th to 13th September
The international festival founded in 2017 to celebrate, support and promote the art of glassmaking: the artistic and economic activity for which the Lagoon City of Venice has been renowned around the world for over 1,000 years. The fourth edition, #TheHeartOfGlass, will take place from 5th to 13th September 2020.
This year, #TheHeartOfGlass will place a special focus on the production of glass, with the aim of helping to relaunch and revitalize the glass sector – primarily that of Murano – after months of closure caused by Covid-19. The art and craft of “making” glass is deeply embedded in Venice’s DNA, and thanks to the knowledge and skills that have been handed down and evolved over the centuries, Murano glass continues to be one of Italy’s most famous exports, admired and celebrated around the world.
The festival is promoted by the Town Council of Venice, and conceived and organised by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, LE STANZE DEL VETRO – Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti and Consorzio Promovetro Murano.
