Please find attached a detailed brief. The key facts and information are summarized below:
The total project budget is €620,000 for the creation of 6 marble sculptures to be placed in the halls of the “Leonardo Da Vinci” Rome airport (“Molo E” and Terminal 3). The sculptures must be inspired by the works of Leonardo.
€75,000 for the two winning artists, one in the “junior” category and one in the “over” category
€15,000 for second and third place in each category, “junior” and “over”, for a total of 4 winners
