I believe cups (le tazze) and glasses (i bicchieri) cannot be synonymous. Cups come with a handle by the side while glasses don't. (At least in my country they don't.)

How do I know when to use "i", "il", or "gli"?

Shouldn't this be the glasses?

is these glasses (obviously, that sentense was about glasses as a dish) is the same word for glasses people who have problem with eyes wear, or e.g. sunglasses?

in italian language there are 3 different words for the english term "glass"

1) glasses of wine = bicchieri di vino
2) sunglasses = occhiali da sole
3) these bottles are made of glass = queste bottiglie sono fatte di vetro

What is the difference between cup and glass?

For me this answer is wrong. Cup in Italian is tazza. Bicchiere is glass.
