Officine Saffi Special Award
A special project (exhibition, residency, production...) to be agreed with the artist
based on their research and career.

During registration, each artist must indicate which residency prizes they intend to compete for
(all prizes are open to them). Nevertheless, if an artist wins a residency award which they cannot take up for proven reasons, the partner will assign it to another finalist. The work which wins the cash first prize will become part of the Officine Saffi collection. The cash Prize will be subject to the withholding of the corresponding Italian personal income tax (25%) in accordance with current legislation in Italy.
