Eighth Edition of the National Sculpture Comp
Locality: Signa (Florence)
| Region: Tuscany

from: 15 November 2022 to: 29 April 2023
Genre: Art

SIGNA - A competition to enhance and promote the excellence of the national territory from an artistic point of view. A competition that has reached its eighth edition and that wants to remember an important figure for our Municipality. The Pro Loco di Signa, in fact, is also organizing this year the "Maria Grazia Vaccari 2023" ceramic-terracotta sculpture competition aimed at young artists aged 18 to 35."The competition - explain the organizers - takes its name from one of our fellow citizens, a scholar of sculpture at an international level, for many years an official of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, then deputy director of the Bargello National Museum and finally director of the Museum of Palazzo Davanzati in Florence. The competition is organized with the patronage of the Municipality of Signa and the Alimondo Ciampi Foundation, a non-profit organization, but with the aim of helping young artists particularly suited to the visual arts. Let's not forget the figure of Alimondo Ciampi, an illustrious sculptor who was born in Signa in 1876 and died in Florence at the age of 63.His eldest son, once his father passed away, wanted to honor and remember his memory through the artistic promotion carried out by the Foundation: "a means that could help all young artists, as was Alimondo". The main purpose of the competition is not only to bring out young artists, with particularly strong skills in sculpture, but also to revitalize the art of terracotta and ceramics, for which Signa was famous, thanks to the works of the Manifattura di Signa, historic ceramic and terracotta workshop, created in 1895 by the will of Camillo Bondi. Not surprisingly, the works of the winning artists of past editions are exhibited in the Parco dei Renai, which can be visited during the opening months of the green area. "The winner, in addition to receiving a cash prize (3.5000 euros), - explains the president of the Pro Loco Signese, Letizia Pancani - thus sees his work positioned in one of the most evocative places in Signa, expanding its beauty and making it even more stimulating the visit of those who walk immersed in nature. The park thus becomes a sort of open-air museum on the outskirts of Florence ”. Registrations are open until April 29,2023,while the awards ceremony will take place between 2-9 September 2023 (during the Antica Fiera di Signa) at the New Straw Museum. Young artists will have to create a ceramic sketch, on a free theme, which will then be examined by a special jury made up of members appointed by the Pro Loco and made up of personalities with specific artistic and cultural skills. Once the winner has been designated, he will have until June 2024 to carry out his work on a larger scale, so as to be able to place it definitively within the park. "This competition - he concludes - certainly represents a valid tool for personal and artistic growth for a young sculptor and the opportunity to see his work exhibited in one of the most famous parks of the Florentine plain, enhancing the history and culture of Signa".
