Turin, 10 October 2011 – The Notarial Council of Turin today awarded a scholarship worth Euro 10,000 to Nicholas Conidi, a second-year student in the three-year IED Graphics course in Turin for the academic year 2010-2011, for his design of the logo and visual identity that will be the symbol of the 46th National Notarial Congress at the Lingotto Congress Centre from 13 to 15 October.
In planning for this event, the National Council of Notaries requested that the European Design Institute of Turin run an internal competition for the creation of the Congress’s logo.
All the second- and third-year students of the IED Torino’s Graphics course for the academic year 2010-2011 took part last April in a competition to interpret the concept of Turin and the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, blending tradition and modernity, which is the theme of the National Notarial Congress. This led to an understanding between two apparently distant worlds that nevertheless have the same goal: to bring out the best of young people’s talents.
From all the designs presented by the second- and third-year graphic design students an initial selection was made of the 10 most interesting entries; and from these was chosen the winning design.
In order to show off all the work produced by the European Design Institute, IED Torino and the Notariat have organised the exhibition “Nessun logo comune” [“No commonplace logo”] which may be visited at the Lingotto Congress Centre from 13 to 15 October, for the duration of the National Notarial Congress. “We are honoured,” declares César Mendoza, Director of the European Design Institute in Turin, “to have contributed to an event that, by being held in Turin, has in effect a strong national value. For the IED, the competition was an opportunity to develop the professionalism of our students: I am impressed by the farsightedness and sensitivity the National Council of Notaries has displayed with regard to these young people”.
Roberto Martino, President of the Notarial Council of Turin, in awarding the scholarship, declared: “We chose to award this scholarship because our eye is always on the new generations both within our profession and outside of it. Forty-eight young notaries are taking up their posts in the District of Turin in the next few months. It is our talented young who represent the future and the engine of development of our local territory”.
