Carapelli renews also for 2021 its support to art and culture. Carapelli for Art, international award for visual arts, announces its IV° edition. From Saturday, March 27th until July 3rd 2021, will be online the free call for entries for the “Open” and “Academy” categories, referring to the new theme:

“Sustainability: There are values that in a particular historical period become more than important: they become necessary. Sustainability is the model of development indicated as the solution now achievable since it is able to balance the growth of the current generation with that of future generations. There is a close proximity with a concept that runs through entire eras of human culture, namely harmony, as an agreement between equal and different elements from which a positive result derives. Art certainly has a central role in the construction of a sustainable and harmonious present: the artworks propose visions, meanings, realizations, behaviours, and responsibilities – from economy to environment, from work to social relations – fundamental for our, still new, twenty-first century.”
