GLASS – Italian Glassmaking Today

Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte is the main partner of “GLASS- Arte del Vetro oggi in Italia” , a spectacular exhibition organized by FAI and curated by artist and art gallery owner Jean Blanchaert, with the collaboration of Irina Eschenazi Focsaneanu. Glass, which illustrates the artistic ferment that is sweeping through today’s glassmaking scene, will be open to the public from May 20 to September 11 at Villa dei Vescovi, a FAI-owned property in Luvigliano di Torreglia, near Padova. A selection of over 100 works of art in glass by some of the best-known artists and designers on the national and international scene will be showcased inside the villa and in the garden. From colored glass works to artifacts in the most eccentric shapes, the exhibition explores the many forms of contemporary glassmaking. For more information, click here.
