FINALISTS

4th EDITION

Sofia Riva, Anna Giannuzzi e Stefano Marino

1st place
Pausa
“Guys, let’s take a break! Coffee? Yes! For me, no! Not for me, thanks… well, actually, let’s make it a yes! A decaf for me! A macchiato for me! Then I’ll also have one! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too! Me too!”

Martina Federico

2nd place
The Coffee Project
A trip shared on Instagram that began in 2015 and ended last April. In each of the bars/restaurants/shops I went to while wandering around Italy I took a photo of the coffee cup. The frame was always the same way, while everything else was different and defines uniqueness: place, brand, position of the teaspoon, cup shape, colours of the counter and other featuring elements that were in the picture by chance.

Luigi D’Aponte

3rd place
ITALIAN AWAKENING
“Beauty” will make us emerge from the hibernation we have fallen into long time ago. However, we have to learn again how to recognize and get in with it. Every morning, most of us handle a “piece of artwork” to “reawaken”, but nearly anybody know is: “Moka Express”. And “Beauty” has its own “Cerimonial”: ritual gestures, waiting times, and transformative dynamics, so that “Everything is accomplished” and the tasty and beautiful aroma reaches the sky.
