Intro
The Fondazione Cominelli and AGC present the fifth edition of the award. This year this manifestation will be sided a section dedicated to training in the University, Institutes and Schools in this sector. The deadline to apply is 10th April!
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, splendid building, built in the XVII century by the Cominelli family.
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 fifth edition of the “Premio Fondazione Cominelli”. This year this manifestation will be sided a 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.

In previous editions, the Milan Polytechnic, the Edinburgh College of Arts, the Tokyo University of Arts and Music, Padua Art School Pietro Selvatico were hosted. This year students of the Glashow Art School will be represented and on Sunday 30st August  in the morning, there will be a lecture by Prof. Michael Pell.
