Artsystem proposes an educational experience for adults and families focusing on learning about the supply of raw materials for glass processing, thanks to the cooperation of the “Compagnia della Marineria tradizionale”, with the lugger “Il Nuovo Trionfo” and a Furnace in Murano. On the occasion of The Venice Glass Week , the historic boat, dating back to 1926, which has been carefully and thoroughly restored in last year, will be the classroom and on this occasion we will have the opportunity to talk about glass within the context of work in the city of Venice. The lugger was engaged in the transport of sand and lumber to Murano, and during The Venice Glass Week it will also be the special means of transport for arrivals at and departures from Murano. The navigation will last 45 minutes to get to Murano at the fornace that will be the site of a brief educational demonstration of glassworking. Participating in this initiative will also help to support the preservation of the lugger. The itinerary includes only one journey, from Venice to Murano or from Murano to Venice.
Places are limited. Reservations will close on 7 September, 2020.
Organized by: Artsystem and Compagnia della Marineria Tradizionale
