Hausbrandt supports the second edition of the Literary Competition “La Calcina-John Ruskin: Writing about Architecture”, whose prize-giving ceremony will take place in conjunction with the opening of the Architecture Biennale 2023.
The Company has always shown its support for art and the city of Venice in particular: in fact, there are numerous activities promoting beauty and culture in general in which the Hausbrandt Group plays an active role. The Literary Competition is inspired by John Ruskin, one of the most eclectic personalities in the panorama of international art criticism of the 19th century, and by the place he loved most in the lagoon city, La Calcina – listed among the Historical Cafés of Italy and among the Historical Cafés of Europe – and is aimed at those who have written about the city and its historical-artistic complexity.
The jury – chaired by Giancarlo Carnevale and with distinguished members on the Scientific Committee – established Javier Atoche Intili and Michela Pirro as winners in the long and short text categories respectively. “Michela Pirro’s ‘Rebuilding Italy: the work of the Pontifical Central Commission for Sacred Art in Abruzzo and Molise after the Second World War’ by Michela Pirro, which will be published in the magazine of the Ateneo Veneto, is the winner of the Hausbrandt Trieste 1892 Prize.
The award ceremony is scheduled for Thursday 18 May at 5 p.m. at the Ateneo Veneto in Campo San Fantin. The celebratory toast at the end of the ceremony will bear the Col Sandago signature: it will in fact be Vigna del Cuc Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut that will delight guests at the end of the event.
