Attendees also had the opportunity to view the personal collection of Murano and other European glassware that Mr & Mrs Glafcos Clerides started, following a visit to Murano, Venice. The collection, donated by the family, will be permanently displayed at The Latin Centre, a venue which is used for events to highlight the importance and presence of the Latin Catholic Religious Group in Cyprus through exhibitions, meetings and cultural events.
