Palladian spaces were once again the backdrop to the final events in the tenth edition of the Premio Internazionale Dedalo alla Committenza d’Architettura (Dedalo Minosse International Award for Architecture Clients). This unique prize recognises the fundamental contribution of clients, both public and private, to architecture.

On 23rd June at theTeatro Olimpico in Vicenza, during an Oscar-worthy ceremony, the four main prizes were awarded, together with further recognition for various aspects of architecture, including sustainability, valorisation and protection of environmental and cultural heritage.
