VITRUM Dalla sabbia alla luce. Scienza, storia e arte del vetro dalla scoperta ai nostri giorni
1 February-18 April, 2021
Monday-Friday, 9 am-1 pm and on Thursday afternoons 2.30-6.30 pm
At Museo Civico Pier Alessandro Garda of Ivrea
The exhibition aims to deepen the knowledge of glass, a fascinating material little represented in museum collections, through the juxtaposition of archaeological finds with works of art from various contexts, near or very far in space and time.
Caterina Tognon participates in this new project with glass works by Maria Grazia Rosin, Richard Marquis and Yoichi Ohira.
Vitrum was born from the collaboration with the Superintendence of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the metropolitan city of Turin, and was realised with the contribution of Fondazione Guelpa, Fondazione CRT and Piemonte Region. It is also patronized by Association Internationale pour l’Histoire du Verre – Comitato Nazionale Italiano.
