More information about the call for entries

The award consists of a prize of 10,000 euros together with a three-year collaboration contract with Viabizzuno. Likewise, the work will be published as a thesis book, with an outstanding publication in the half-yearly magazine Viabizzunoreport and the result of the competition will be announced in the press. In addition, if the work presented consists of a project or prototype of a manufacturable object, Viabizzuno will produce twelve numbered copies of it that will be put on sale.

The award ceremony will take place on the 25th of April 2020 in Milan on the occasion of the Salone del Mobile at the Viabizzuno light laboratory in Via Solferino 18.

In addition to this interesting initiative, we would like to take this opportunity to recall the emotional speech “Lodiamo i tempi antichi per imparare a vivere nei nostri” with which Mario Nanni, master of light and founder of Viabizzuno, participated in the International Scientific Symposium Safety in Heritage organized by the EKABA Foundation in May 2019. We leave you with the complete recording of the conference hosted on our Vimeo channel, as well as the written article that is part of the publication of the book of proceedings available in digital version for download.
