Located in the west wing of the ex-Convitto (a former boarding school) on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, the exhibition centre hosts exhibitions but also conferences, workshops and other events dedicated to glass.

Moreover, as part of Le Stanze del Vetro project, the Fondazione Cini has set up a special Study Centre in its Institute of Art History to promote the gradual establishment of a general archive of Venetian glass; the creation of a specialised library; the organisation of seminars, conferences and workshops; and the institution of scholarships specifically addressed to researchers interested in the topic.
