SILVER TREE AWARD FOR QUALITY IN ARTS
Starting in 2010, we have established the “The Silver Tree for Quality in the Arts” award, originated by the Coppini Family strongly felt desire of "Feeding the Planet" - from the theme of the Expo 2015 - with art and culture. To create through culture and the arts strong ties between minds, hearts and beautiful souls, healthy and real, which feed the Planet and originate virtuous circles of creative energy.
Following the first edition dedicated to Maestro Leo Nucci (the world’s greatest baritone ) and the second edition won by Professor Giovanni Ballarini (food anthropologist and President of the Italian Academy of Cuisine), the award will always be given to people who, in the different domains of the Arts, have sought Quality above all, without compromises
The Ark of Culture –Agorà Orsi Coppini Museum, home of the Silver Tree for Quality in the Arts award, was created as a place for dialogue (as it was the agorà for the Greeks) and for sharing Excellence, without ever betraying Quality, meant as Transparency, Intellectual Honesty and Passion for the profound soul of a person’s artistic vocation; the unmistakable Light that is a sign of Good, who continues to create the Universe and its Beauty trough the talents bestowed on humans. To us the duty and honour to grow them and put them at the service of fellow man and the World as a gesture of supreme humbleness and eternal endurance of Beauty, as the Creator’s ultimate gesture.
