Lydia call, open to artists under 30

Live forever in the indelible sign of art. Based on this assumption, the Lydia call, proposed by the cultural association “Il Lazzaretto”. Established in 2014, the foundation proposes and develops a practice-based research method, triggering processes of collaboration and hybridization.
Il Lazzaretto supports the research of emerging talents. And it is to this end that it promotes Lydia: a call for proposals for artists under 30 consisting of a cash prize of 5 thousand euros for the realization of an original work. The contest also includes a mentorship with the artist Adrian Paci and three training sessions on the theme of the call with experts and professionals from different cultural fields.
The award is dedicated to the memory of Lydia Silvestri, a sculptor student of Marino Marini, who for years worked in the spaces where the Foundation is now based.
