#The Italian Glass Weeks 2022: Nexa is an official partner

2022 has been officially designated by the United Nations as the International Year of Glass and, with the occasion, Venice and Milan, symbolic places of Italian tradition and style, have joined forces for #The Italian Glass

The event will celebrate and promote Italian excellence in the global landscape of glass work, on an artistic, industrial and design level.

Once again Nexa, with her “Tours by Nexa”, will take you to the most fascinating ateliers and furnaces in Venice and Murano. Starting from Saturday 17 September, until 25 September, we will be organizing special guided tours to glass furnaces, studios and workshops, so that visitors can appreciate the timeless value of a constantly evolving art that expresses itself through the hands of the masters and artists at work.

The tours will be led by our professional guides, trained in the specific contents of the venues to be visited and in the production and tradition of glass: a story born in Murano that has spread throughout the world!
