In memory of the extraordinary contribution of Enrico Marinelli, creator of the Guild of the Dome, Eurovita has generously made available resources for an international competition among contemporary artists close to the spirit which animated the great past masters whose works adorn the Florentine monuments and fill the Cathedral Museum.

Artists will be asked to propose works in the spirit of the monumental sculpture and painting for which Florence is famous, but in a contemporary style, expressing the universal human values which are at the heart of the Cathedral’s heritage of sacred sculpture and painting.

The objective is not to reproduce the masterpieces of the Renaissance and of the Christian faith for which the Opera del Duomo complex and museum are renowned, but to encourage artists of whatever cultural, religious or philosophical background to explore the great themes of the human spirit, in one or another of the languages of art that today speak to women and men around the world.
