Viva Hotels for Florence: “A new facade for San Lorenzo: virtual competition with Michelangelo”.

The Florentine Hotels Company VIVA HOTELS VIVAHOTELS has promoted FOR FLORENCE a desirable international contest of virtual architectural and engineering design in competition with Michelangelo.

Since 1992 in VIVA HOTELS was born the idea to contribute to Florence’s artistic and cultural environment, by announcing an international contest of virtual architectural and engineering design titled

“A new facade for San Lorenzo: virtual competition with Michelangelo”.

The idea was accepted by the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation, Florentine institution born in 1998, with the aim of organising initiatives involving university students of Centre East Europe, Eurasia, Asia and Far East.

The Foundation has promoted the idea of the international contest either to Florence City Municipality and to the Superintendence of Artistic and Historical heritage as well as to other Florentine institutions. The response was positive with the obvious advices of attention and care that the message was perceived as it is: an international “virtual” contest.

We wish to precise that the whole project is only a contests of ideas, not finalised to find a real solution. The project should be realised in the respect of the city, of the tourists and of the Superintendence, without disturbing neither the citizens, nor the Administrative offices.

Draft of the Project:
International contest of virtual architectural and engineering design
“A new facade for San Lorenzo: virtual competition with Michelangelo”
The project is articulated within 3 years:

1° year

- final decision made by an high qualified Jury.
