A new success for the city of Venice: the 15th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Protection of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Unesco has officially included “The Art of Glass Pearls” in the representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity.

This is the first of many conquests that will come for Venice, it is the first time that an intangible element of the city is included in the Unesco list.

“The art of Glass Pearls” consists in the knowledge and mastery of glass and fire. It consists in the art of bringing together very different techniques and not merely to the created object but to the social and cultural implications of this type of art.
