The Venice Glass Week Offers a Wealth of Online Programming

The Venice Glass Week takes place from September 5-13, and you can attend virtually! It is the international festival that the city of Venice dedicates to the art of glass. The fourth edition, #TheHeartOfGlass, has a program of exhibitions, demonstrations, guided tours, online events, and more. This year’s festival will place a special focus on the “making” of glass: the artistic and productive activity which has been deeply embedded in the Lagoon City’s DNA for over a thousand years, and for which Murano continues to be renowned and celebrated around the world.
