Ca' Foscari and SUN celebrate the winners of the contest on Venice
The latest initiative organized by the Silk Road Universities Network (SUN) and Ca' Foscari University to celebrate the 1600th anniversary of Venice has ended today, with an award ceremony at the Santa Margherita Auditorium. The project was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the City of Venice and with the support of Fondazione di Venezia and Dolce&Gabbana.
The contest, which was launched last April, has involved students from all member universities of the network. The participants were asked to express their creativity in three categories (video, t-shirt, written essay), following prompts connected to Venice, its traditions and history.
Among the many proposals from all over the world, here are the nine that won:
H2Opia - Teodora Ioana-Rosu, University of Bucharest, Romania
On Water - Anna Zaitseva, Saint Petersburg State University, Russia
Glories of Venice - Maryam Bolouri, Allameh Tabataba'I University, Iran
T-Shirt Pattern Design Contest
Venice Moon - Hasti Jalouti, University of Tehran, Iran
Marco Polo Grey Shirt - Martina Gori, Ca’Foscari University of Venice, Italy
The portrait of Marco Polo - Muhammad Ali Aizat Bin Abu Bakar, University of Malaya, Malaysia
Venice and India - a bonded epiphany - Harshita Dangwal, University of Delhi, India
Masks and glass art crafts: From Ancient Greece to the present day - Christina Mitsia, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
What is seen through glass and masks? - Victoria Zimoushina, Moscow State Linguistic University, Russia
During the event, a minute of silence was observed in solidarity with Iranian people.
At the end of the ceremony, the participants were accompanied to Ca' Foscari Esposizioni to visit the new virtual exhibition "Venice and Suzhou. Water Cities along the Silk Roads".
Ca’ Foscari student Martina Gori was among the winners of the contest. The second-year Digital Management student submitted her idea, which is dedicated to the most famous Venetian explorer: “Despite the pragmatic aspect of the subjects I chose to study, I’ve always loved being creative. When I saw the email inviting us to join the contest, I decided to try and send in my idea.
To come up with the design of the t-shirt, I tried to reimagine Marco Polo from a social media perspective, like the first travel influencer in history.
For the presentation of the project I’ve also created a fake instagram profile for the explorer, showing how it’s possible to connect historical figures and younger generations.”
The Vice-Rector for the Third Mission, professor Caterina Carpinato, introduced the winners of the essay category: "It is a real pleasure for me to attend this award ceremony and to have three young people here next to me who told us with their essays, what masks and glass mean today in the tradition of their countries. And to compare these traditions with the Venetian ones wasn’t easy, so I must congratulate them for their commitment and courage in facing this contest.”
During her address, Rector Tiziana Lippiello stated: “The collaboration between institutions and the willingness to create opportunities for people to meet and exchange ideas has made this ceremony possible. I wish to thank everyone who has believed in this project and the people who have worked for two years in preparation for this day. [...] Venice is unique because of its historical, environmental, cultural and economic features. It is a city in which Ca’ Foscari University of Venice has decided to make investments, in order to contribute to a sustainable and fair future by laying strong foundations for the “bridge” that will lead us to tomorrow.”
