On 18th December 2017, class 2E of the High School “Il Pontormo ” visited the glass company ZIGNAGO, on the outskirts of Empoli. The factory is completely automated and the various stages of processing are controlled by computers.
After the first theoretical introduction we witnessed all the stages that, from a “drop” of molten glass, the vitreous paste, lead to the finished bottle, then packed and prepared for the shipping.
The company is known for the large recycling capacity of old glass scraps, which allows to create new products starting from waste material, defined by the factory workers “a real raw material”.
