International Jury 2021 - Biennale

XIII EDITION

The International Jury, made up of prominent figures from the world of art and design, has always played a central role in the life of the Florence Biennale. Its task is to decide the awarding of the International Awards "Lorenzo il Magnifico" for art and "Leonardo da Vinci" for design, at its sole discretion, by evaluating the works exhibited by the participating artists and designers in the various categories. The President of the Florence Biennale appoints the members of the jury and may award one or more special mentions.
