Presentation

One of the most significant cultural events to take place in Gualdo Tadino is undoubtedly the famous and well established International Competition of Ceramic Art, organised by the Tourist Association 'Pro Tadino' in 38 editions started from 1959 and leading right up to 2009. More than 600 Italian artists and 400 foreign artists from more than 41 nations have exhibited during that time achieving success with an ever increasing number of participants. A competition with a theme, a peculiarity of this event, allows Italian and foreign artists to express avanguard experience and innovative ceramic art techniques with awards given to illustrious artists. Amongst the most prestigious artists who have won prizes are Edoardo Abbozzo, Lee Babel, Angelo Biancini, Pino Castagna, Salvatore Cipolla, Otto Eckert, Goffredo Gaeta, Guido Gambone, Nedda Guidi, Vlastimil Kvetensky, Hans Marks, Muky, Aligi Sassu, Nino Strada, Natalia Nicolaevna Viatkina and Carlo Zauli. After a few years pause, a promotion committee made up by the 'Pro Tadino', the borough administration and the Polo Museale, have decided to reactivate the initiative and launch the 39th edition that by joining tradition and innovation aims to prove once more the cultural commitment of Gualdo Tadino as 'CITY OF CERAMICS'.
