In a whirlwind trip to Milan, Italy, I was treated to a press preview of Vitrum 2015. A small group of fellow editors and I spent approximately three hours on a guided tour of Milan that focused on buildings that have used glass as a prominent feature of their architectural design.

From old architecture to redevelopment, my eyes were dazzled by the history and culture of this city. I am thankful for the Italian Trade Commission, which sponsored this trade mission to the country, and the Italian Association of Suppliers of Machinery and Accessories for Processing Glass (GIMAV) for organizing this trip.

Here are just a few of the views I captured during my visit.

Vitrum is an international trade show that specializes in machinery, equipment and systems for flat and hollow glass and in glass and processed products for the industry. It is scheduled to take place October 6-9 in the exhibition district of Fiera Milano, Rho.
