Winning project CULTURE + ENTERPRISE Prize 2020-2021 Sponsorships and cultural partnerships: LE VIE DEI TESORI FESTIVAL: Le Vie dei Tesori Onlus + Unicredit

The prize CULTURE + BUSINESS this year it has reached its 9th edition. It is one of the most important Italian observers of cultural sponsorships and partnerships, corporate cultural productions and corporate investments in Art Bonus

The non-profit CULTURE + IMPRESA committee, founded in 2013 by Federculture and The Round Table communication projects, announced Short list of 23 projects among which 29 members of the jury will now select the winners of the three first prizes in the category and of the 6 special mentions.

As every year, this becomes a unique ‘snapshot’ of the trends in this increasingly strategic alliance between business and culture. The 23 projects have been selected from the 135 that have applied. If the first prizes in the previous edition all went to projects in Center-South, the brother party this year goes to the Regions in Center-North, first and foremost Lombardy (9 projects on the Short list) and Emilia Romagna (5 projects on the Short list).

Synthesize Francesco Moneta, Chairman of the CULTURE + ENTERPRISE Committee: “In some territories and urban contexts, culture has been the driving force behind the restart, favoring the activity of traders and artisans; art is an effective language for spreading pressing issues such as environmental issues or relevant issues such as our territories excellence and care and human well-being; cultural projects of various sizes, and not only associated with the art bonus, have been able to create ‘teams’ and networks no longer single or few companies, but real territorial networks; digital innovation and gamification are now more and more areas of joint innovation between companies and public and private cultural actors; non-occasional cultural projects are at the heart of the relaunch and confirmation of cities, companies, foundations, universities; Contemporary Art – to which a Special Mention is dedicated for the first time this year, and which includes visual arts, multimedia installations, urb an art, digital art, photography – is present in 6 projects and is confirmed as a language that has increasingly been adopted by companies; Widespread festivals, cultural reviews, multidisciplinary events have finally been able to win their audience back after a year of stopping. “

Institutions and public and private cultural actors, companies, funding funds and communications agencies are therefore the main figures in this alliance, which will be celebrated with the usual Award Workshop, which in the first week of July will award 3 first prizes in the category and 6 special mentions: Digital Innovation in Arts (in collaboration with the Italian Accenture Foundation), CCR – Corporate Cultural Responsibility (in collaboration with CSR and Social Innovation Exhibition), Under 35 (in collaboration with Patrimonio Cultura), Networking in Arts, Contemporary Art + Business (in collaboration with Artissima ).
