Art of Italicus 2020, Creative Talent
A call for artists: enhance Italian bergamot rosolio
Italicus is a bergamot rosolio on the market for four years.
It has become one of the most popular aperitifs thanks also to its contemporary way of representing Italian style. Beauty, design and craftsmanship set to rediscover the unique flavour of the Calabrian PGI bergamot.
Its creator Giuseppe Gallo calls it "the real sip of Italy", given that the ingredients of which it is made are selected throughout Italy.
To celebrate Italicus' fourth birthday, Gallo has decided to create the Art of Italicus 2020, Creative Talent. This is an international contest, a competition between original works of art in digital format to inspire talents all over the world with an artistic challenge different from the usual.
"Art of Italicus 2020, Creative Talent" is organized in collaboration with Moniker, a leader in the enhancement of urban and contemporary art and is reserved for artists under 35.
Italian illustrators, graphic designers, painters, collage artists and digital artists are called to compete together with artists from 14 other countries: from the United States to Spain, from Norway to Australia.
Italicus asks them to use all the artistic fantasy and creativity they are capable of representing the traditional moment of the Italian aperitif, telling the story of Italicus, inspired by the intrinsic origins of Bergamot Rosolio.
The works must be submitted by July 13 2020, and all must be done using digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process.
A jury of experts will decree the three finalists and, on September 1, 2020, in conjunction with the fourth anniversary of Italicus' birth, the three winners of the Art of Italicus 2020, Creative Talent will be announced.
In addition to the cash prizes, the winners are expected to participate in a global event of the 2021 edition of Art of Italicus.
The initiative is also connected to Bergamore project in support of bergamot agriculture in Calabria.
