Gorky Award is a literature competition founded in 2008 by the same-name Association with participation of Chernomyrdin’s Regional Public Fund “Middle Class Support and Development” and municipality of Capri. The award is named after the great Russian writer, for whom Italy has actually become “home away from home”. That is why graphical solutions, illustrations and factures of the visual concept unite nostalgia and documentary motives. The fact that Award is to a greater extent devoted to the art of translating defines graphical style of materials – type setting in Italian contrasts hand-written translation into Russian. In 2009, the project was awarded with Grand Prix at the annual professional contest of printing art, Printing Art Maitre.
