La Grande Bellezza, 2021-2022 Edition | Starhotels - photo 1
Second Edition 2021-2022

The deadline for submitting nominations for the second edition of the La Grande Bellezza Award expired on 31st March 2022.

164 requests from craftsmen, designers and creative minds from all over Italy responded to our call for pieces on the theme of "The Beauty of Nature".

Among them are the frontrunners of savoir-faire, exponents of historic workshops in Italy, but also those of a younger generation who have presented their creations. In many cases all following the fil rouge of sustainability and imagining furnishings and details of high craftsmanship to be placed in prestigious settings in the world of hospitality.
All the artworks presented express the chosen theme in a very personal and original way and represent an extraordinary map of Italian savoir-faire, the authentic character of Made in Italy and in this context promoted together with the partners Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte, OMA and Gruppo Editoriale.

 The first prizewinner will receive a cash sum of ten thousand euros and the finalists will be involved in a series of promotional and communication initiatives to support our great national heritage of know-how and design culture.

The Winner

The Starhotels "La Grande Bellezza" Award assigned to "Primitivo," a project realized by Andrea Bouquet. Primitivo aims to strip the piece of furniture of its characteristic form and sturdiness, distorting geometric and natural lines and taking inspiration from a still wild or untamed Nature.

The Finalists

The Jury is asked to particularly favour works that engage with the overarching theme of Italian beauty and successfully show the connection between manual skill and creativity, placing a contemporary spin on antiquated and complex traditional techniques.
