Vitrum, the glass industry on show at Fiera Milano

From 6 to 9 October, Fiera Milano in Rho will be hosting Vitrum, the specialist fair for machinery, equipment and products for glass processing.

Conceived in collaboration with ICE (Italian institute for foreign trade), this event will provide the widest overview of the use of glass in products of excellence.  

The exhibition layout at Vitrum will be divided into three main sections: glass in history and design; glass as the main player in architecture; glass and new technologies. The History and Design section will showcase a piece of enormous relevance: an amphora featuring a gladiator scene dating back to the second century A.D., displayed only once in Milan in 1964.  Visitors to Vitrum will also be able to admire an extremely rare example of glass radiator from 1941 and one of the most famous chairs from the recent history of design: the Ghost armchair by Cini Boeri, in the exceptional 2007 edition in mirror-finish silver-plated glass, produced by Fiam.

A large section divided into two themed areas will be dedicated to glass in architecture: Projects and products and Research and experimentation, to highlight the complexities of the use of glass in architecture. There will be plenty of projects on display, in a layout that moves from theoretical use of light and colour in the urban landscape to redevelopment of existing examples, through to the use of glass in new architectural geometrics. Technological research will emphasise the most interesting examples of energy savings and living comfort that, precisely thanks to the use of glass, have achieved results that until a few years ago were unimaginable. The most recent studies into chemistry applied to glass will be part of experimentation in the strict sense of the term, with presentation of the most advanced research: from electrochromic glass to digital signage, chromogenic glass and OLED to solar mirrors.
