This year, for the first time, the festival is offering a series of official guided tours: The Venice Glass Week Tours by Nexa, organised in collaboration with Nexa, a Venetian company specialising in organising high-level events and international projects. These tours will allow participants – in small groups, with an emphasis on safety and appropriate social distancing – to experience first-hand the magic of artistic glass production.
From 7th to 13th September, during The Venice Glass Week, these guided itineraries take place around Murano and Venice, involving a series of furnaces, workshops, ateliers and companies selected by Nexa, with the aim of helping visitors to understand and appreciate the value of an ancient art and craft that is in constant evolution, through the hands of masters and artists at work.
The tours, both in terms of logistics and content, are entrusted to professional guides, who have been specially trained by Nexa regarding the production and history of glass from Murano and beyond.
