Verona 28 September 2018 - The fascinating scenario of the Italian Stone Theatre, among works celebrating Italian excellence in stone and pools of water multiplying its majesty, was the setting for the award ceremony of the twelfth edition of the Best Communicator Award. The award, conceived by Veronafiere and dedicated to the best stands at Marmomac, is a not to be missed appointment during the trade fair and has increased its prestige among the 1600 exhibitors year after year.

The jury - comprising journalist Giorgio Tartaro, as President, designer and design blogger Camilla Bellini, interior designer Umberto Branchini, architect and designer Marco Piva and the scientific director of Arketipo Matteo Ruta - after an initial evaluation of the candidatures received, reviewed all the halls to complete the selection process and to elect the companies that best interpreted the concept of exhibit design.

The prize-giving event took place yesterday during the Marmomac Water Night Gala; during the evening interspersed by acrobatic dance performances by Ada Ossola, Maria Agatiello and Paola Quistini, the award ceremony was presented by Laura Peloso on stage with the President of the jury, Giorgio Tartaro, and Veronafiere's top management.
