The International Glass Commission (ICG), the Community of Glass Associations (CGA) and ICOM-Glass are promoting 2022 as the United Nations International Year of Glass to highlight its scientific, economic and cultural roles and celebrate several anniversaries. The glass is the basis of many vital technologies, facilitates sustainability, un eco-friendly approach and enriches our lives, yet it often goes unnoticed.
This exciting journey began in 2018. The international support it came from 1650 universities and research centers, companies and associations, museums, artists, educators, producers and companies in 81 countries on 5 continents. The formal resolution was agreed at the UN General Assembly on May 18, 2021.

Show Glass. Italian jewels between '800 and' 900 curated by Bianca Cappello and Augusto Panini
Glass, kaleidoscopic and multiform, has always been appreciated because it is capable of taking on the appearance and colors of nature and also of going further, transforming itself into something that tends to be new, the result of the ingenuity and creative capacity of the human being. Between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, following the industrialization process, glass diversified its identity: on the one hand a product of the finest and highest craftsmanship subject to technical and artistic experimentation for luxury and refined jewels; on the other, an industrial item for the general public used in low-cost jewelery.
Through a meticulous research and a careful selection of over 300 pieces including designer jewels and period documents, the event reveals the fascinating evolution of Italian style, costume and society over the last two centuries.
On display about 300 jewels, objects, drawings, photos and documents, all rare, unique and unpublished pieces, coming from prestigious private collections and from the archives of the Bijou Museum of Casalmaggiore. It will be possible to admire long and colorful sautoirs from the beginning of the century, Deco-style bracelets of millefiori murrine, jewels in Roman micro mosaic made for the Grand Tour, large multi-strand necklaces and collars made with tiny beads to match the sartorial cocktail dresses of the Sixties. It will be possible to be fascinated by the numerous bouquet earrings of the fifties, by the bijoux of the flower children inspired by Native Americans, by the large crystals of the eighties, and also by the more experimental creations of the great designers and artists of the end of the millennium.
Special attention is also paid to environmental sustainability thanks to the ad hoc set-up with recycled glass by the Iranian designer Sogand Nobahar.
