At PART, Rimini's Palazzi dell'Arte, the new biennial recognition for young Italian art under 40 called the PART Italian Artists Award. The initiative was born from an idea of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Giuseppe Iannaccone, in collaboration with the Municipality of Rimini and the San Patrignano Foundation. The aim is to support emerging Italian contemporary art and to contribute to increase the Collection, through the acquisition of a work by the first three awarded artists.
The young finalists chosen by the selection committee composed of Edoardo Bonaspetti, Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti and Francesco Garutti, are 12 (Benni Bosetto, Costanza Candeloro, Caterina De Nicola, Binta Diaw, Lorenza Longhi, Beatrice Marchi, Diego Marcon, Daniele Milvio, Margherita Raso, Andrea Romano, Giangiacomo Rossetti, Davide Stucchi). They are the protagonists of an exhibition within the PART, which remains visible to the public for four months. Visitors to the PART can express their preferences, using a form available in the exhibition, which is added to that of the selection committee. Even the girls and boys from San Patrignano Community can assign their preferences.
The three winners will be announced during a public ceremony at the end of the exhibition (Saturday 1 October 2022).
