The Mediolanum Award for Painting (now in its second edition) focuses on painting, a medium poised between tradition and innovation, that in recent decades has witnessed an explosion of technical and conceptual experimentation, welcoming challenges posed by new technologies as well as by identity-related, ecological, and social issues.

The Award was the acquisition of a work exhibited in Pittura XXI, curated by Davide Ferri, a section making its debut at Arte Fiera 2020. The winning work became part of the Casa Mediolanum Padova art collection.
