Recycled glass and design for the new Publiacqua bottle. My Bottle contest for young talents extended

Design, creativity and attention to the environment: a "call to the arts" for young talents who, even in time of #iorestoacasa, will be able to put themselves to the test to create the new Publiacqua branded recycled glass bottle. The deadline for participating in the My Bottle contest, with which the central Tuscany water service management company is looking for the "shape of water" of the future, has been extended until April 3. The aim is to encourage the daily use of tap water, which is economically and environmentally sustainable. The call, in collaboration with Istituto Europeo di Design and with the support of the Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art and Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, is aimed at all Italian and foreign citizens aged between 18 and 30 who do not work in a professional design studio. Given the particular circumstances in which the deadline for applications, initially set at 15 March, fell, the promoters of the contest have decided to extend the deadline to 3 April 2020 at 6 p.m.: projects must be sent by e-mail to contest_firenze@ied.edu.
