Officine Saffi Special Award

The award is conceived, supported and organized by Officine Saffi to promote ceramics in contemporary culture. It is an excellent opportunity to create a platform where emerging artists can dialogue with established ones and with leading figures in contemporary art and design.

Officine Saffi is a cultural association that has been promoting international contemporary ceramics since 2011. The project has stood out over the years for its multidisciplinary approach, embracing the worlds of contemporary art, design and applied arts. It pursues its mission through a gallery, workshop, publishing house and a biennial award. These all work independently, while sharing the same spirit of refinement, selection and innovation. The founder, Laura Borghi, guides every project with support from a young and passionate team. In collaboration with its international partners, Officine Saffi has built a network that has played a fundamental role over the years in spreading the culture of ceramics in Italy and abroad.

The Award would not be possible without the precious support of:
