Cavaso del Tomba, 06.11.2023- On Sunday 5 November, in the premises of Longarone Fiere (Longarone, province of Belluno), SERIE UNICA | Craft Design Made in Veneto received the 1st ARTE FIERA DOLOMITI Design section award. This award represents an important milestone in a journey that has seen the involvement of 10 Veneto craft companies for about a year and a half, including training, consultancy, co-creation and design workshops.
SERIE UNICA | Craft Design Made in Veneto is in fact a collection of handcrafted design objects inspired by the territorial merchandising object and dedicated to the 9 UNESCO heritage sites in Veneto: each company was entrusted with a Veneto UNESCO heritage, which was then codified through study, analysis and design into a design object, be it furniture, furnishing accessory or fashion accessory. In the collection, shapes are enriched by the intertwining of materials and the stories they tell.

In SERIE UNICA the object becomes pure narrative and instrument of knowledge, going beyond the meaning of design object to become a representation of a territory. Territorial excellence meets Know-How to tell its story through the codes of design.
The award was presented during the prize-giving ceremony of ARTE FIERA DOLOMITI in Longarone (province of Belluno), in the presence of Michele Dal Farra, president of Longarone Fiere, the jury chaired by Ferruccio Gard (7 participations at the Venice International Art Biennale) and Franco Fonzo, artistic director of Arte Fiera Dolomiti. Together with Federica Preto, artistic director and project coordinator, all 9 companies involved in the project were awarded: TAPPEZZERIE CONTESSA L’ARTIGIANO (Conegliano, province of Treviso), KS DESIGN (Ormelle, province of Treviso), ISPACE by FRATELLI DAMIAN (Colle Umberto, province of Treviso), EVA TRENTIN (Marano Vicentino, province of Vicenza), LOU ARTECERAMICA (Schio, province of Vicenza) – Le Dolomiti (2009), TORRESAN TRAVERTINO | Italian Creations (Pieve del Grappa, province of Treviso), CRISTINA BUSNELLI (Bassano del Grappa, province of Vicenza), CARTERÌA AI FRARI (Venice), LEGNOMART (Maser, province of Treviso).

SERIE UNICA, after a year-long training course financed by the Veneto Region, has been self-financed since January 2023 by the companies involved who decided to invest in the realisation of the collection. This recognition is an important tribute to the creativity, commitment and determination in carrying out the project.
