Exposition en collaboration avec APSV.

The final exhibition of the museum's 40th anniversary is devoted to the fascinating history of the production and use of flat glass, from the first windows in Roman baths and villas made of cast glass to the production of float glass, which has been used in architecture since the 1970s. It highlights the interplay between technological innovations and developments in flat glass production, the construction industry and architecture, and provides an insight into the diversity of this once precious and now everyday material.

A special focus is placed on the Romonto-area company Epredia/Erie-Electroverre, which in 1935 inaugurated the first electric furnace for the production of drawn glass. Archival documents, photographs and filmed testimonies trace the history of this company, which unfortunately closed its doors in 2021.
