After endless days of work, inconveniences, frugal meals, sleepless nights, we arrived at the super day: Saturday 30 November. The starting point was set at 4pm with the inauguration of Joey Guidone’s personal exhibition – DRY -, a beautiful collection of about 50 illustrations, made for magazines, book covers and personal projects. Among these illustrations is also shown the image with which Joey Guidone won last year the 14th edition of the illustration competition (“Little Castaway), the one created this year for Super (out of competition) and the cover and back cover illustrations of the catalog Dry.
Introduced by Letizia Anelli, Joey Guidone accompanied the public on a visit to the exhibition.
At 5 pm we moved to Santa Maria della Pietà, once again welcomed by a warm and numerous public. After the presentation of the jury (were present: Elisa Talentino, Francesco Ceccarelli, Joey Guidone, Grégory Panaccione and Maria Flora Giubilei) and of the special guest, Bruno Bozzetto, we went directly to the awards ceremony.
A very serious notary announced the winner of the Popular Award: valid votes were 1968, with 240 votes he wins Michele Rizzardi , surpassing Alberto Becherini (215), Regina Salviato (182), Elena Ceccato (166) and Federica Fabbian (142).
Per assegnare il Premio della Critica (2500 euro) avevamo invitato nientemeno che Supervip, il celebre personaggi creato da Bruno Bozzetto, ma la sua improvvisa e inaspettata defezione ci ha costretti a ripiegare sul fratello Minivip… Distribuendo delle lettere giganti tra il pubblico è comparso il nome del vincitore, l’incredulo e sorpreso Francesco Fidani.
The final act was dedicated to the Calendar 2020, with illustrations by Francesca Ballarini, Nicola Ferrarese, Francesco Fidani, Riccardo Guasco, Iulia Ignat, Marco Marella, Daniela Pareschi, Cristina Pieropan, Natalie Pudalov, Michele Rizzardi , Regina Salviato and Luca Soncini.
The super weekend ended the next day, Sunday 1 December, with an interview with Bruno Bozzetto. In closing we would like to thank all the people who worked on the exhibition: Andrea Rampi, Elena Toninelli, Letizia Anelli, Ettore Comelli, Fabio Brancaccio, Cesare Zanesi, Claudio Arisi, Siria Bertorelli, Michele Prosperi, Angelo Facchetti and Mauro Doimo (also for the extraordinary commitment in the realization of the sound chairs present in the exhibition).
