The Venice Glass Week 2020
#TheHeartOfGlass – 4. edition
venice glass week

The Venice Glass Week is the international festival founded in 2017 to celebrate, support and promote the art of glassmaking: the artistic and economic activity for which the Lagoon City of Venice has been renowned around the world for over 1,000 years. The fourth edition, #TheHeartOfGlass, will take place from September 5th to 13th, 2020.

With a program including exhibitions, demonstrations, guided tours and online events, the festival will build on the success of the 2019 edition which featured over 200 events in more than 100 different venues, attracting an audience of 103,000 visitors from Venice, Italy and abroad.

This year, #TheHeartOfGlass will place a special focus on the production of glass, with the aim of helping to relaunch and revitalize the glass sector – primarily that of Murano – after months of closure caused by Covid-19. The art and craft of “making” glass is deeply embedded in Venice’s DNA, and thanks to the knowledge and skills that have been handed down and evolved over the centuries, Murano glass continues to be one of Italy’s most famous exports, admired and celebrated around the world.

The festival is promoted by the Town Council of Venice, and conceived and organized by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, Le stanze del vetro – Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti and Consorzio Promovetro Murano.
