The Pierangelo Bertoli Prize 2019 was awarded to Luciano Ligabue, who also received the first Emilia Romagna Prize. It is the first time that the Emilia Romagna Region has conferred this recognition. It will be given to Emilian artists who embody the values of the Region and keep its name high. And this is the case of Luciano Ligabue.
The Prize will be delivered on Friday 18 October by President Stefano Bonaccini during the final of the Pierangelo Bertoli Prize at the Storchi Theater in Modena. It consists of a painting by Maestro Franco Ori depicting a portrait of Ligabue.
