That the VAF Foundation has landed in Ferrara is certainly positive. For the city, in fact, it means fully inserting itself into the dynamics of national and international contemporary art. The homonymous award of the Foundation landed yesterday at the Estense Castle, housed in the rooms of the noble floor, in an exhibition open until June 4, 2023. Now in its ninth edition, the award was established to support Italian contemporary art and boost cultural exchange between Italy and Germany. The German foundation inaugurated it in 2003, with the desire to promote the artistic and creative potential of artists under 40. Over the years the organization of the competition has boasted numerous collaborations with important exhibition venues, national and German, such as the Mart in Rovereto, the Museo della Permanente in Milan, the Macro Testaccio in Rome, the Civic Museum of Palazzo della Penna in Perugia, the Institut Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt, the Künstlerhaus in Graz and the Stadtgalerie in Kiel.
