This year sees the return of the festival’s 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.

During The Venice Glass Week, special guided tours are taking place in Murano and Venice around a number of furnaces, laboratories and companies 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.   For the first time, a number of virtual tours are also being offered during the festival.

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