Italy is internationally recognised for its excellence in the field of glass, both at an artistic and industrial level. In 2022, the United Nations International Year of Glass, the two most important Italian festivals dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of glass – Vision Milan Glass Week and The Venice Glass Week – are joining forces to present a major new initiative: The Italian Glass Weeks. The aim of the initiative is to showcase, promote and support glass in Italy at both a national and international level.
The Italian Glass Weeks will take place in Milan from 10th to 18th September 2022, and in Venice from 17th to 25th September 2022. The programme will feature a wide range of initiatives aimed at the Italian and international consumer public, including exhibitions and installations, guided tours, demonstrations and workshops, as well as a series of B2B events for companies operating in the glass industry.
2022 has been designated by the United Nations as the International Year of Glass.
The Italian Glass Weeks is part of the official programme of the 2022 United Nations International Year of Glass. Taking place over the course of a fortnight in the international cities of Milan and Venice, it will be Italy’s largest and most important event dedicated to glass, and one of the most significant glass sector events in Europe.
