The eighth edition of The Venice Glass Week celebrates internationality!

The eighth edition of The Venice Glass Week, with the title-hashtag #AWorldOfGlass, celebrates the internationality of the festival, which every year welcomes participants from all over the globe. The graphic image of #AWorldOfGlass draws inspiration from Murrine, one of the world’s oldest glass processing techniques. Known for its vibrant colours and detailed patterns, it’s a timeless technique with infinite varieties and possibilities.

This year’s festival is characterised by its internationality, having received the highest ever number of applications with over 300 submissions by candidates from 45 countries. The multitude of applications testify to the great vitality of the artistic, cultural and production scene in the glass sector, not only in Venice, but also around the world. All the submissions were evaluated and carefully selected by the Curatorial Committee. Chaired by the Venetian glass historian Rosa Barovier Mentasti, the Committee includes a team of glass experts at an international level: Jean Blanchaert, Susanne Jøker Johnsen, Rainald Franz e Alma Zevi.

The Venice Glass Week 2024 will take place from 14th to 22nd September around Venice, Murano and Mestre, featuring an exciting new programme of events dedicated to artistic glass!
