Glass Study Centre – Open Glass Archives

Centro Studi del Vetro - Fondazione Giorgio Cini

Description

On the occasion of the second edition of the event “The Venice Glass Week”, that will take place on September 9 – 16, 2018, the Glass Study Center at Fondazione Giorgio Cini will offer the possibility to visit the Glass Archive and its specialized library, located inside the Nuova Manica Lunga Library, in the form of guided tours, upon reservation. The public will have the chance to appreciate the precious research resources, such as unique sketches, drawings, multi-faced original projects (initially used inside the glass furnaces, or coming from artists’ private archives) now held in the Glass Study Center.

 

This opportunity will be offered not only to scholars and researchers, but also to those curious or passionate about 20th century Venice glass art and techniques.
