Victor Fotso Nyie is the winner of Artigiano del Cuore 2021

The young ceramist from Cameroon wins the Fondazione Cologni competition

Thanks to the votes obtained by Wellmade’s community, Victor, a young ceramist from Cameroon, Faenza by adoption, will be able to participate in the fundraising on the platform, to raise € 5,000 and realize his project: to buy a high-temperature kiln and raw materials, which will allow him to experiment with new techniques and work with materials more suitable for the creation of his sculptures. Starting from Wednesday 30 June, anyone can contribute with a free donation on the Rete del Dono platform, without having to register on the site.

The objective of the 2021 edition of Artigiano del Cuore is to support new artisan businesses. Among the dozens of applications received, the Cologni Foundation selected a shortlist of 10 finalists, chosen above all on the basis of their talent and the feasibility and usefulness of the help requested in the application. It was then the public to decide the winner of the competition: Victor Fotso Nyie received great support from his community, obtaining an impressive 1661 votes and demonstrating that he is capable of creating beauty and value for his territory, and not only.
