The Ways of Glass - Visits with the expert in museums, Civic Archaeological Museum of Milan

Event organised by Comitato Nazionale Italiano AIHV – Association Internationale pour l’Histoire du Verre
The section of the Archaeological Museum devoted to the Roman period displays numerous glass vessels from the early centuries A.D. from a variety of excavation contexts, both local and collector's items. The intact and best-preserved objects were part of grave goods, where they were deposited together with other ceramic and metal vessels and personal ornaments of the deceased. The considerable number of objects makes it possible to observe the wide range of forms in use on the table and in Roman homes and to delve into the variety of working techniques.
Prominent among the specimens preserved at the Museum is the famous Trivulzio diatreta cup, a splendid product of luxury craftsmanship from the fourth century AD.
