This competition is aimed at enhancing the town of Caorle and especially the cliff dividing the Adriatic sea from the town center. The contest, now in its 19th edition, aims to enrich Caorle's heritage by transforming the cliff into a veritable open-air contemporary art gallery, whose changes will be given by time and natural agents.
