It’s not possible to
understand the evolution of wine over the centuries without knowing the history
and transformations of its containers. The essay compares the evolution of the
quality of wine with the development of glassworks, starting from a span of
time between the eighteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century,
and focusing on the territory of Tuscany.
