MEDAL 2013 SELECTED TODAY


02-10-2012



Marco Pittacci’s artwork has been chosen to be the official medal of the Rome Marathon 2013.

Pittacci, 25, is from Rome and holds a Degree in Scenography.

His sculpture has been selected by a panel of judges presided by Master Alfiero Nena, author of the last 15 Rome Marathon medals. Among the judges, also Olympic marathon gold medalists Stefano Baldini (2004) and Gelindo Bordin (1988).

Grounds for the choice: superb artistic realization, strong symbolism of the image of a man and a woman running together – yet towards different directions, plus perfect synthesis of the elements that make the Rome Marathon unique (cobblestones of the streets, sense of holiness of most segments of the racecourse, history all around runners).
