The Venice Glass Week is a non-profit initiative organised by a Committee made up of the Comune di Venezia and three of the city’s principal cultural institutions with considerable experience and expertise in the field of glass – Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, Fondazione Giorgio Cini – LE STANZE DEL VETRO and Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti – together with Consorzio Promovetro Murano, the organisation that serves as the guardian of original Murano glass production and manages the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark of the Veneto Region.
Since 2018 the festival has officially been designated by the Regione del Veneto as one of the “Major Events” of the territory.
Vision Milan Glass Week is a project of VITRUM, the international trade fair for the glass processing industry which takes place every two years in Milan. The sole shareholder of VITRUM is GIMAV, the Trade Association that is part of CONFINDUSTRIA, which represents manufacturers and suppliers of machines, accessories, equipment and products for glass processing.
In 2021 the event was supported by the Regione Lombardia and Città Metropolitana di Milano, and was financed by the Ministero degli Esteri and Cooperazione Internazionale through ICE Agenzia.
