Prizes will be awarded to original projects specially designed for the event, and various exhibitions of contemporary artists will be set up.

There is also a didactic aspect featured in a tour of the island of Murano entitled Alla ricerca della murrina perduta(In search of the lost murrina). In Mestre there is a space dedicated to buttons, in collaboration with the Museo Storico del Bottone "Sandro Partesotti" of Padua, which traces the changes in fashion of this accessory.
