Scholarship named after Maria Cristina Bergesio

Scholarship named after Maria Cristina Bergesio

First edition, school year 2020-2021.

The selection for the first edition of the call for the assignment of a LAO scholarship dedicated to the memory of Maria Cristina Bergesio was longer and more complex than expected, but we can finally communicate the name of the candidate who has been selected for this important first edition.

Mrs. Federica Cogliandro, winner of the selection has been admitted to attend the second year of jewellery making course, free of charge.
In addition to attending the normal lessons she will develop throughout the year a project which will be characterised by innovative research into contemporary jewellery.
In this project Federica will be supported by Alice Rendon, lecturer in the history of contemporary jewellery, Maria Laura La Mantia, lecturer in culture of jewellery, and Giò Carbone for the realization of the objects.

The research results will be disclosed and published at the end of the study period.

LAO thanks the numerous participants in the call, who are invited to try again for the next edition, in 2022.
