PRETIOSA VITREA
THE ROMAN ART OF GLASS MANUFACTURING IN TUSCANY

NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM, FLORENCE

Expected dates: October 2017 - January 2018

The “Pretiosa Vitrea“ project aims to emphasize the heritage of glass manufacturing from the Ancient Rome through the showcase of artifacts nowadays preserved in the state museums of Tuscany and in important private collections within the region. The quality of these findings is comparable in excellence to the artifacts that can be found in the most renowned international museums.

The exhibition, whose title is inspired by the Latin definition of glass given by Gaius Petronius in the Satyricon written in the late 1st century AD, will bring together relevant archeological findings of Roman glass manufacturing in Tuscany - as the glass cameo from Torrita di Siena or the chrysography of Arezzo - and spotlight some extraordinary excavation contexts which are significant for the amount and quality of the recovered artifacts, like the ancient ships of Pisa and the Pozzino wreck.

Alongside these exclusive glass products, a wide variety of findings will be showcased to illustrate the evolution of mass production techniques, from the use of moulds to the discovery of the glass blowing technique in the middle of the 1st century BC, which soon demonstrated clear advantages compared to the traditional ceramic production in terms of lower cost and keeping unchanged the taste of the contained food and liquids.

The project, which has been approved by the National Archaeological Museum of Florence, includes a traveling exhibition in Italy and other countries.
