ROTARY AWARD

The Rotary Award - now in its ninth year – is presented to the most creative installation at Arte Fiera 2020.

The essential aims of the award remain unchanged: spread the love of contemporary art among young people and disseminate the Rotary’s principles of friendship and brotherhood among all people.

In this edition, all of Bologna’s Rotary Clubs have participated in the Award as the Felsineo Rotary Group. Synergies have been confirmed with Rotaract and with the Free Academy of Caravaggio Studies Francesco Maria Cardinal del Monte, as well as the collaboration with Rotary International Distretto 2072 Emilia-Romagna and the Republic of San Marino.

The Award included:
