A special occasion for a milestone event – Villa Schiarino Lena, Porto Mantua, Italy is once again the beautiful location for the 20th edition of the annual ‘3-in-One’ gathering that features presentations from Chief Designers, a competition for young designers and a related sportscar exhibition. Autostyle Design Competition XX will be held from 11 and 12 October, 2023.
Mr. Roberto Artioli, President of Berman S.p.A.and Autostyle Design Competition founder in looking forward to the landmark occasion explained about the success of the initiative: “The event has evolved and grown from the competition for young designers, the exhibition of significant cars and the Brand Chief Designer Workshops on new models, becoming key-factors in making Autostyle unique and even bigger than originally thought. An event which takes a good year of work, is concentrated in about a couple of days, in a friendly and unique atmosphere.”
“Students from Design Schools are invited to take part in the competition by creating special versions based on an existing original production or concept cars. The awards ceremony for the students has over the years revealed many talented young designers, with many gaining prestigious positions with high profile automotive brands. Moreover, the historic venue is most suitable, with a well-equipped internal theatre and a large garden, which is ideal for car exhibitions,” he added.
This year the Centri Stile workshops will present exciting new projects from the following manufacturers: Toyota, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, BYD, Ducati, DAF Trucks, EssilorLuxottica, Dallara, with more to be added to this exceptional list nearer to the date.
“We are grateful of the contributions, support and co-operation of WACOM, as title sponsor and magazine partners Auto&Design, RAMP, Autotecnica, Fleet Car (Ireland), Virtual car, all of which are collaborating with the event,” concluded Roberto.
