Intro
We have the pleasure of communicating that the Jury has selected the winners of the Cominelli Foundation Award for Contemporary Jewellery 2011.
About Fondazione Cominelli Award
In the extraordinary setting of Lake Garda with its colours and lights, among the moraine hills that stretch from the Gulf of Salò and the Gulf of Manerba, at Cisano di San Felice we find the Fondazione Cominelli.

The splendid building, built in the XVII century by the Cominelli family, overlooks the Gulf of Salò, houses the Foundation. The Fondazione Cominelli, in carrying out its cultural activities has now come up with an articulated project where it becomes a reference point for the applied arts, not only for exhibitions, but also as a place where applied art “is done”; it does this by organising workshops and conferences on the subject; of this complex panorama it has chosen to present and delve into some sectors only: photography, ceramics and jewellery.

The Fondazione Cominelli is sided by Agc which organises and promotes the event. Agc has already promoted other projects on the national territory. Agc, (Contemporary Jewellery Association) founded in June 2004, has, among its statutory objectives, that of drawing attention to the value of the contemporary jewellery culture and spreading it. Contemporary jewellery today represents a sector of advanced research and experimentation of new expressive languages as well as exploiting the personal ornament concept. In close contact with the international community, the association follows up a series of initiatives aimed at promoting a constructive and synergistic confrontation with other artistic and productive realities.

Here, in this setting, will be held the second edition of the “Premio Fondazione Cominelli”. This year this manifestation will be sided by the start of a new section dedicated to training in the University, Institutes and Schools in this sector. The scope of this section is to present and confront different formative directions within the “jewellery” ambit, the different orientations, from design to artistic and handcraft training, getting the formative peculiarities of each reality to emerge.

An exhibition will present the projects and prototypes produced by 40 students of the Specialization Course in Jewellery Design of the Faculty of Design of the “Politecnico of Milan”, run by the architect Alba Cappellieri, director of the Course.

With the second edition of the Fondazione Cominelli Award for Contemporary Jewellery 2011 there will also be the inauguration of the Permanent Collection of Contemporary Jewellery; each edition will enrich the Collection with new works, some by the competition participants and others by artists selected for this year 2011 by the historian and jewellery critic, Bianca Cappello. The permanent Collection will become an important document of the Fondazione Cominelli, an occasion for a visit by jewellery lovers and those of the trade.
