Campiello Award 2015

On Saturday 12 September, the splendid Gran Teatro la Fenice in Venice was the setting for the concluding evening of the 53rd Premio Campiello literary award, promoted and organized by the Veneto branch of Confindustria, the Italian business and employer’s confederation. Magis has always attentively supported a wide range of initiatives and cultural events, and indeed it was one of the sponsors of this prestigious award this year, supplying a number of Magis Proust chairs (design Alessandro Mendini) to furnish the stage from which author Marco Balzano was proclaimed winner, with his book “L’Ultimo arrivato”, published by Sellerio.

The event was broadcast live on Italian national television, presented and hosted by celebrities Geppi Cucciari and Neri Marcorè.
