An extracurricular course for international high school students.

Participants were invited to hone their collaboration skills by designing their ideal table sets. Despite not being able to travel to Murano due to the COVID-19 crisis, they were able to learn from glass maestro Lino Tagliapietra’s decades of wisdom and experience, thanks to a fifty-minute documentary.
