The Award

As part of the project “La Grande Bellezza,” Starhotels confers a bi-annual award whose primary aim is to valorize the repertoire of Italian crafts and artisan masters. The award is meant to recognize the talent, skill, and know-how of artisans working in Italy, as well as their initiative. The award money is intended to support the winner’s craft, demonstrating how, with hard work and talent, doing business in the world of craftsmanship in Italy is still possible.
