After the great public success of the 2020 edition, which took place in full pandemic, the fifth edition of The Venice Glass Week entitled #VivaVetro! is held from 4 to 12 September 2021 to continue with renewed enthusiasm to pay homage to the ancient art of glass, a knowledge that has remote traditions, rooted in the DNA of Venice, the artistic and productive engine of the lagoon city, which has been handed down until today, continuously innovating and making the Island of Murano a global reference point. Comune di Venezia, Fondazione Musei Civici, Fondazione Giorgio Cini - LE STANZE DEL VETRO, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti e Consorzio Promovetro Murano, propose for the 2021 Edition both a program of events - exhibitions, demonstrations, guided tours -, and special online events that place reflection on the “making” of glass today at the center of the international debate.
