Italian Pool Award 2017: the winners

The annual meeting with the winners of Italian Pool Award 2017, this year at its seventh edition, was held as part of ForumPiscine exhibition.

Friday, February 17, in fact, were presented to the public the names of the six pools that won the coveted prize, chosen from among 35 candidates by a jury of professionals especially selected for the Italian Pool: pools preferred for their ability to exalt at the most the best of the Italian pool design, and due to their extraordinary characteristics.

As a matter of fact, the members of the jury, composed of the architects Giorgio Balestra, Francesca Lanzarini, Anna Sessarego, Alberto Zanetta, the microbiologist Alberta Stenico and the head of the organizing secretary ForumClub - ForumPiscine, Mariagrazia Lioce (in the role of president of the jury), made their evaluations about each of the 35 pools in the competition, focusing not only on the aesthetic of the various projects, but also looking specifically to the facility engineering and its technical aspects.

The pools were all greatly appreciated by the judges and some of them competed for the victory by winning with scores very close to each other: in short, an intense competition in every way!

Only a candidate pool for each category, however, could win, and we are pleased to announce which are the pools that were up on the podium, winning the precious bronze statue made by Foundry Merighi Art of Bologna, on the project of Osvaldo Casanova designers.
