A Chance to Win € 12,000 at the 2020 Carapelli for Arts Competition

Carapelli announced the third edition of Carapelli For Art competition, an award for visual art promoted by the historic Tuscan company Carapelli.


The theme of the competition is Roots. “The roots keep us firm on the ground, to make us grow in height; they are our identity, history, tradition - individually and collectively. They make any form of exchange possible because their strength is inclusive. This is in their principle: they give us nourishment and stability, to allow development and transformation. In art, the roots are essential: they can be the relationship with one's origin, the recurring character of a research, the solid link with a material or an idea, the first and necessary element of a process."


The "Academy" category is reserved for students regularly enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts. In the event of a win, the certification of regular registration to the Academy declared during the application phase will be required. The "Open" category is reserved for all the other artists.
