Award ceremony

of #mostralaluna competition

 

During the opening night of the exhibition, Friday 5 July, the first prize of the competition consisting of a personal exhibition at L'Armadillo was awarded.

 

The jury unanimously decrees the first prize ex aequo to the following winners:

Becocci Sonia with the work "Foto ricordo"
and Romano Luciana with "Non sono un sogno"

 

With the following motivation:

The works fully meet the criteria of the competition such as the originality of the work, coherence with the theme of the call, technique used, artistic curriculum.

 

Moreover, for each of the works the jury has expressed the following judgments:

 

"Foto ricordo"

For sensitivity, execution, humanity, the author transmits to us the sense of memory, suggesting to the observer the atmosphere of a situation now long gone, recalling the emotion experienced in the magical moment of the landing.

 

"Non sono un sogno"

The narration is complete, the moon is suspended in space, an enveloping universe.

In its descriptive richness, in its centrality, it is a protagonist Moon that becomes true in the moment of human landing and therefore no longer a dream.
