artists born or resident in Trentino-South Tyrol, the province of 
Verona or the Austrian Tyrol.

composed of specialists with different backgrounds, in order to 
guarantee the Prize a multidisciplinary character; they are: Carlos 
Amorales (artist and performer, President of the jury), Carlo 
Antonelli (music critic and Director of "Rolling Stone" Italia),
