The Italian Glass Series
The ITALIAN GLASS SERIES is an online video project in 4 episodes created by Italian Trade Commission - ITA, GIMAV, the Italian Association of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Machinery, Equipment and Special products for Glass Processing in collaboration with National Glass Association (NGA).

The series features leading Italian glass working companies and cutting-edge technologies, materials and processes  which have been carefully selected for their suitability  and changing impact for the US Market. Though intended for a wide audience, these videos showcase glass working machinery in motion, along with exclusive interviews with developers, engineers and end-users. They convey the ingenuity, passion and dedication of the Italian glassbuild community which include both processors and technology providers.

The series has been simultaneously released on three YouTube Channels on Tuesday, May 18, 2021: Glass Magazine YouTube Channel, GIMAV YouTube Channel and MachinesItalia YouTube Channel and it is still on line!

According to the US Department of Commerce, since 2019, Italy has been the first world supplier of glass working machinery to the U.S. Throughout 2020, Italian machinery exports arrived at a value of more than $123 million dollars with a global market share of 19.6%. A trend confirmed for these first months of 2021.
