The SEA theme was particularly felt by 400 artists from over 60 countries on 5 continents in a crossroads of different sensitivities scattered throughout the world which mainly highlights three aspects, as written by Paola Biribanti, member of the jury: The sea as an environment polluted by plastics is result the most addressed topic; followed by the sea understood as a perilous gateway to a new life, therefore as a place for vacation and recreation. A high quality result. The level of most of the drawings is decidedly high, so it was the unanimous will of the Jury to raise the number of recipients of the Special Mention to twelve.
The event could not have lasted for over fifty years without the contribution of numerous "volunteers" and "precepts" who brought enthusiasm and desire to do whatever the task received, with nineteenth-century shifts! From the choice of the drawings, to the preparation of the panels (always the same every year), to the posting with various pins of the hundreds of drawings up to the presence on stage.
We therefore want to thank, in absolutely no order but with equal contributions, all those who come to mind, apologizing if we miss some, but we are ready to fix it!
