Description

The booklet, published on the occasion of the exhibition held at the University of Rome 'La Sapienza', presents a selection of over 150.000 specimens from the collection of the tenor Evan Gorga, who lived between the end of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century. The objects, mainly from Rome and the suburbs, cover a chronological period so wide as to allow an excursus on glass production from its origins to the present day, alongside the illustration of the various manufacturing techniques, from glass on a friable core to blown glass . Of particular interest are the architectural glass, made up of thousands of slabs imitating marble, which the studio has made it possible to bring back to the villa of the emperor Lucio Vero, remembered by ancient sources as 'very famous', and whose ruins are still preserved at the gates of Rome, on the Via Cassia.
