“Piazza della Repubblica”(Repubblica Square). .
THE CATERINA DE' MEDICI PAINTING AWARDS will be presented to the
winners during the Gala Dinner on Saturday 26 March. All the participants
will receive a parchment certifying their participation. This
initiative will have the merit of initiating a new type of tourism
with a strongly based cultural program that will be repeated every
year. We are certain that all those who are interested in knowing
Florence and its beauties will be able to create a personal work
of art, following their own bent; the most important aspect is
that the winner work will be exposed in the most interesting cities
of the world for art and culture and this will be very satisfying
for the painters.
The awarded works of arts will remain
the property of the organization and will be donated to the COMMON
