From 5 to 8 October Milan will be the capital of glass with the first edition of Vision Milan Glass Week, an event organized in the city by Vitrum https://www.vitrum-milano.com/, an international exhibition dedicated to technology professionals of glass (machines, equipment and plants for processing flat and hollow glass, glass and transformed products) which will take place simultaneously with Fieramilano Rho.
An “off-fair” event that will involve the public with exhibitions, workshops, meetings to raise awareness of the excellence of a sector in which Italy boasts a global leadership.
Every day from 10 to 22 the epicenter of the event will be in the central Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the artistic installation “the Monster of the Lagoon” created by the master Nicola Moretti will find space.
Institutional and corporate events will instead take place at the Catella Foundation, while shops, showrooms and clubs have joined the Road Map, the schedule of collateral events that will involve the whole city of Milan.
Vision Milan Glass Week aims to enhance a little-known sector such as that of technologies related to glass design.
The event is promoted by Gimav, which organizes Vitrum, as the director Fabrizio Cattaneo explains: “Glass is a material that surrounds us at all times, synonymous with design as much as with everyday applications, but which we often take for granted. Few know how much technology is behind the creation of glass objects and few know that in this sector too, Made in Italy is synonymous with excellence. Not to mention that glass is at the heart of the sustainable transition. This will in fact be the central theme of our first Milan Glass Week, an event designed to exploit the energy and interest that the city of Milan has at a European level “.
And precisely to explore all the variations of the world of glass, as well as to network with another leading reality, Vision Milan Glass Week is organized by Vitrum in collaboration with Milan Wine Week (2-10 October). An “almost” contemporaneity created to enhance the link between wine and its container of choice, glass.
An event that also marks the ideal start of the celebrations that will characterize 2022, named International Year of Glass by the UN.
