Pretiosa Vitrea, the exhibition dedicated to the evolution of glass manufacturing in history, concluded successfully at the National Archaeological Museum of Florence in Italy. Sponsored by Pneumofore, the project drew high levels of interest from both the academic world and general public, attracted by the quality and beauty of the glass artifacts on display: over 300 unique glass findings manufactured by ancient Egyptians, Etruscans, Greeks and Romans. Among the notable visits, the exhibition was honored by the presence of the Queen Mother Beatrix of the Netherlands accompanied by her entourage. Her Majesty showed great admiration for the project and the showcased artifacts.
As a leading supplier of vacuum and compressed air systems for the worldwide glass industry and strongly committed to cultural responsibility, Pneumofore financially contributed to unveil this prestigious and invaluable glass heritage.
Promoted by the Sehen Foundation in collaboration with the Archaeological Museum, the exhibition was held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and it is described in a content-rich catalogue (ISBN:
9788874398041). A full video report is also available on the Sehen Foundation website.
