Theme: Water, wonder of the earth

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’ which has been held 38 times since 1959 with the most recent edition in 2009. More than 600 Italian artists and 400 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 experiences at the vanguard of innovative ceramic art techniques with awards given to illustrious artists. Amongst the most prestigious artists who have won prizes are Edoardo Abbozzo, Lee Babel, Massimo Baldelli, Angelo Biancini, Pino Castagna, Edouard Chapallaz, Salvatore Cipolla, Otto Eckert, Goffredo Gaeta, Guido Gambone, Nedda Guidi, Vlastimil Kvetensky, Alfonso Leoni, Viljo Makinen, Hans Marks, Salvatore Meli, Muky, Pompeo Pianezzola, Mario Rossello, Hanibal Salvaro, Aligi Sassu, Nino Strada, Natalia Nicolaevna Viatkina, Carlo Zauli. After a pause of a few years, a promotion committee made up by the ‘Pro Tadino’, the municipal administration and the Polo Museale, have decided to reactivate the initiative and launch the 39th edition which once more aims to demonstrate the cultural commitment of Gualdo Tadino as ‘CITY OF CERAMICS’ in the joining of tradition and innovation.
