The Ducato Prize was born between Parma and Piacenza, from the need to raise awareness of contemporary art in the area, focusing its attention on national and international artists of the latest generations, who through their research are able to arouse critical reflection on the most significant aspects of our contemporaneity. The award is divided into two sections: Contemporary Art Award and Academy Art Award. The initiative will therefore be aimed at rewarding both artists who are already active within the contemporary art world, and younger artists, still enrolled in training institutes, in order to stimulate their growth.The Ducato Prize for its third edition has involved a jury that stands out for the professionalism and diversity of its members: Leonardo Bigazzi (curator of Lo schermo dell’arte, Florence), Zoe De Luca (independent curator, Milan), Marta Papini (artistic organizer of the 59th Venice Biennale Arte 2022), Chris Sharp (independent curator, Mexico city) and Paolo Zani (Gallerist, Zero…,Milan)The jury will have the task of selecting, among the applications received, forty artists from the Contemporary Art section and ten from the Academy Art section, from which six finalists will emerge (three for each section).

To support the jury in the choice of the winner there be an international board of collectors who examine the applications and portfolios of the selected artists. Among the collectors: Emilio Alvarez, Emilio Bordoli, Frédéric De Goldschmidt, Mauro De Iorio, Erminia Di Biase, Andrea Fustinoni, Vittorio Gaddi, Marina Nissim, Veronica Siciliani Fendi e Marco Zappalorto.
