Generali was awarded the special ‘Art Bonus’ prize at the Corporate Art Awards 2017 held recently in Rome, for the restoration of the Royal Gardens in Venice’s Piazza San Marco. The winners were applauded by the President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella.
The event, which was established to promote international ties between the worlds of business and art, acknowledges those companies that have taken action to sustain artistic and cultural heritage.
It is organised by pptArt in partnership with LUISS Business School and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism.
“We are proud to have received this prize. The restoration project of the Royal Gardens alongside with the restructuring of the Procuratie Vecchie, are linked to the broader The Human Safety Net initiative that involves the entire San Marco area - Simone Bemporad, Group Director of Communications and Public Affairs of Generali, commented - it is a project we strongly believe will be a proactive tool to support and strengthen engagement with the wider community.”
