From 7 to 15 September 2019, the Venice Glass Week will be back on the Lagoon with its third edition. Promoted by Comune di Venezia and conceived and organized by the Fondazione Musei Civici della Città lagunare, Le stanze del Vetro-Giorgio Cini Foundation, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti and the Promovetro Murano Consortium, last year this international fair dedicated to fine glassmaking recorded no less than 90,000 visitors.

Over one week, Venice, Murano and Mestre will host over 180 events including exhibitions and installations, guided tours, workshops and demonstrations, conferences, shows, parties and games across some 150 venues — some as prestigious as the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo, the Fortuny showroom, the Querini Stampalia Foundation, and others lesser-known but just as inspiring, such as the many workshops and furnaces that will open their doors especially for the event.
