Saturday, December 2, you really came in many. Thank you! It was a wonderful party in honor of the selected authors and a tribute of affection for Antonio Lupatelli, aka Tony Wolf, who presided over the jury and is the protagonist of his first solo exhibition. The day began at 4 pm when Guido Scarabottolo presented the exhibition “Disorder” by Giulia Pastorino at Spazio Tapirulan. Then the long-awaited moment of the award ceremony arrived. The Critics Prize of the 13th edition of the Tapirulan competition was awarded to the Russian illustrator Victoria Semykina. The Popular Prize was awarded to Davide Bonazzi, who became the first author to win both prizes in the competition, having already won the Critics’ Prize in 2013. On the 2018 calendar will appear illustrations of: Davide Bonazzi, Andrea De Luca, Marco De Masi, Laurent Ferrante, Francesco Guarnaccia, Alice Piaggio, Natascha Rosenberg, Giovanni Scarduelli, Jacopo Schiavo, Victoria Semykina, Marco Spadari, João Vaz de Carvalho. The day after we still had the pleasure of meeting Tony Wolf who told us about his career. The day ended with the presentation of the “Manuale dell’illustratore” by Anna Castagnoli. The exhibition will remain open until January 28, 2018 in Cremona, then will move to Genova Nervi from March to June 2018. We thank again all the many participants, both in the competition and at the inauguration, and all the partners who supported the initiative. Hello, next year!
