The Award, given to the client's representative and to the design team in the person of his group leader, consists of a "plaque" and an original work produced by Aldo Cesar Fagà, an artist from Sicilian origins whose studies are crossed by the spirit and by the thought of where the civilization of Magna Grecia was born, the root of European culture.
