23/09/2014 GALA DINNER

Overlooking Piazza Maggiore, right next to the famous Neptune fountain, the Salaborsa of Bologna hosted the third edition of Quinquennial Tile Award of Fincibec Group. In keeping with the tradition, this symbolic setting hosts the most important and comprehensive international event dedicated to the award for the best creative use of ceramic materials in architecture. An exciting evening for the 450 guests who had the opportunity to attend the award ceremony under the vaults of the Auditorium Enzo Biagi and enjoy the entertaining show held in the impressive, marvellously lighted, covered square. Salaborsa is a historical place that can be acknowledged by every visitor just looking at archaeological excavations visible beneath the glass floor. A place able to reinvent itself and open to more and different events, while preserving its role of vital center of the city of Bologna. A versatile and dynamic space, just like the ceramic material that Fincibec has been offering to the market for over 50 years, and that will also be the star of the fourth edition of Quinquennial Tile Award. Actually, the new edition of the award has already begun, and candidates can submit their application by March 31st, 2016 directly on the website www.tileaward.it. While waiting for the new winners, the pictures and videos on this page tell the story of the evening dedicated to the winners of the third edition. Photos and videogallery

Qta second edition

Under the “Time to win” motto, the Fincibec Group celebrated the winners of the second edition of the award designed to investigate the creative use of ceramics in architecture. With a magical evening event, a show of lights, sounds, colours, flavours, art and dance expertly blended in the charming scenario of the Palazzo dell’Archiginnasio of Bologna, Fincibec welcomed and entertained a large audience of guests from all over the world, in Italy for the concurrent opening of the Cersaie.
The creators of the five winning projects of the second edition of the Quinquennial Tile Award were officially awarded and presented to the audience on a stage specially set up in the hall called Stabat Mater. A place featuring an inimitable atmosphere characterised by the history that pervades it, that of the oldest university in Europe. Guests were also given the opportunity to go on a guided tour of the 17th-century Anatomical Theatre.

The location was not chosen at random because Fincibec recently funded the restoration part of the decorations of the Palace, in particular, of the XXII arch frescoes of the upper arcade. These works represent the possibility for future generations to fully benefit of the beauty of this masterpiece of art and architecture.

The Awards evening event of the second Quinquennial Tile Award and the launch of the third edition of the Awards are also narrated through the photo gallery and videos on this page
