Starhotels Award, II edition, “The beauty of nature”.

01/12/2021 - 31/03/2022

After the great success of the first edition, the second edition of the La Grande Bellezza Award promoted by Starhotels, in collaboration with Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte, Associazione OMA - Osservatorio dei Mestieri d'Arte and Gruppo Editoriale, is now underway. "The Beauty of Nature" is the new, fascinating theme of the biennial Prize: participants are invited to submit works centered on the theme of nature as a fundamental element of home and hospitality furnishings and daily living. At a time when the natural environment is suffering an unprecedented decline, and where awareness of the damage to which it is exposed is becoming increasingly clear and widespread, we want to encourage the creation of works that take inspiration from it, highlighting its great beauty, extending even within an enclosed environment suggestions that only nature can offer. Also for this new edition, the winner will receive as a prize a cash sum of € 10,000. The selection of the works will be conducted by the authoritative Jury of the Prize, one of the strengths of the initiative for importance and prestige of the participants. The Jury is made up of the President of Starhotels Group, the Partners of the Project, experts in applied arts, design, lifestyle, art and culture. Visit the website!
