Amongst the new initiatives introduced during the fourth edition of the festival, #TheHeartOfGlass, was the series of official guided tours: The Venice Glass Week Tours by Nexa, organised in collaboration with Nexa, a Venice-based company specialising in high-level events and international projects. These tours allowed participants – in small groups, with an emphasis on safety and social distancing – to experience the magic of glassmaking first-hand.

Over the course of the festival, members of the public were escorted around a wide range of furnaces, workshops and ateliers selected by Nexa, with the aim of demonstrating and underlining the value of artistic glass production – an ancient art and craft that is in constant evolution. 

The tours, both in terms of logistics and content, were entrusted to professional guides who had been specially trained by Nexa regarding the production and history of glass from Murano and beyond.
