At 2pm, a transfer service awaits you at Fiumicino airport, ready to take you to Siena. Upon arrival, you’ll have enough time for a short break at your Hotel, setting the stage for your inaugural encounter at the Accademia dei Rozzi. This esteemed cultural institution, revered as one of the city’s finest, traces its origins back to the 16th century—a period of unparalleled cultural brilliance in Siena. During this era, scholars from across Europe gathered here, mentored by luminaries in literature, jurisprudence, medicine, philosophy, and the arts.

At 6:30 PM, following a brief yet heartfelt welcome in the magnificent hall of mirrors, the inauguration of the “PIATSAW” exhibition by photographer Nicola Frioli awaits. This remarkable exhibition will unfold within a few rooms of the Academy, specially accessible to the public for the Siena Awards Festival. Through Frioli’s lens, witness the unwavering resilience of indigenous communities as they valiantly safeguard their ancestral lands against the relentless encroachment of destructive extractive practices.

The evening will draw to a close with a delightful aperitif, offering attendees from around the globe the opportunity to socialize in a welcoming atmosphere. This friendly gathering will foster a sense of togetherness, allowing everyone to fully immerse themselves in the warm atmosphere of this specially curated tour by the Siena Awards.
