Glass is a material that since ancient times has enchanted man for his unique qualities of transparency and visual lightness. For the ancients the glass had something magical, the Phoenicians even had a deity of glass, called Hiyon, testifying to the fascination that this element has always exercised in the human race.

Nowadays, glass is becoming increasingly important in whole application areas, from interior design to architecture. A notable example comes from that the most fashionable trends in architecture and modern design are: lightness, exactness, coherence and multiplicity. Lightness represents the dimension according to which buildings must not appear to be monoliths, but must be integrated into the environment, even if they are well defined, and here is the exactness. Architecture has to integrate many languages ​​and forms without, however, losing consistency and unity. Glass, thanks to its properties, lends itself as a material of excellence to perform these trends. Furthermore, its use is an extremely ecological choice as a 100% recyclable material. It also presents an important distinction compared to other recyclable materials.
