A new era of Renaissance in arts
A very important aim of the Guild is the addition of contemporary art to the artistic wealth of the Complex. This was initiated in 2018, with the establishment of the Enrico Marinelli Art Award, in memory of the founder Enrico Marinelli.
The prize aims at bringing back the Opera del Duomo institution to its original role of sponsor to living artists.
Therefore it has started an international award among contemporary artists close to the spirit which animated the great past masters whose works adorn the Florentine monuments and fill the Cathedral Museum.
The prize aims at becoming a bi-annual appointment for living artists to come and perform for the
Opera del Duomo institution.
The winning artist will realize the project in Tuscany with the help of the local artisans.
The artwork will be produced in two pieces, one that will enter in the Opera del Duomo Museum’s collection and will be exhibited in the museum premises for six months next to the masterpieces of Michelangelo, Ghiberti and Brunelleschi.
