The winner of the competition will carry out the six-month research at the Glass Study Centre, will have access to the library and the photo library resources with the supervision of a tutor and will be invited to participate in the cultural initiatives promoted by Fondazione Cini.

Furthermore, the accommodation at the ‘Vittore Branca’ Residence campus on the Island of San Giorgio will be an opportunity of interdisciplinary exchanges with the scholars and the scientific community of the Fondazione Cini.
