The cabins are all but one placed on the stonequays, partially cantilivered above the sea, one placed on a natural shelf on the rocky formations above . The positioning and orientation of all the cabins is based on the consideration of their individual panoramic views and privacy for the guests. The cabins are designed to offer their guests shelter and comfort while at the same time underlining the dramatic experience of the elements outside; the sea, landscape, changing lights, weather and different seasons.

Gold medal for Alitalia Uniform by Ettore Bilotta. The collection has been designed and tailor-made by a team of nearly 500 people in Italy, with fabrics made in Tuscany, silk in Como, men’s uniforms tailored in Puglia, and leather accessories such as gloves in Naples, and shoes in the Marche region.

It also celebrates the people of Alitalia, their professionalism, style and passion for the airline.
Silver medal for 784 armchair by Carlo Colombo. This is not an armchair, or at least what appears as an armchair. There is, between an object and its aesthetic dimension, an aspect that stimulates our gaze or leads it elsewhere, almost to a condition of transcending the perceptible realm to which both the object and the word naming it belong
Silver medal for “Colli Ripani wine collection” by Andrea Castelletti, Camilla Gatti, Camilla Boselli. Every wine is a story of the land it comes from, worthy of being told: the 10 wines in the line play witness to an original short story that tells of the Colli Ripani in 10 chapters. Each bottle is a piece of a puzzle, that when put together gives a complete picture of the Ripatransone territory. An idea that is given life in both the graphics and content of each label: a journey from one wine to another in 10 stages, that tell a unique story together.
Silver medal for “I-MESH Lightweight Diffuser Ceilings ” by MIGLIORE+SERVETTO Architects. Mondadori Megastore in Milan has been conceived by architects MIGLIORE+SERVETTO as a place with strong identity roots given by a specific combination study of different materials and colors where I-MESH has been purposely designed to be a lightweight diffuser ceiling thanks to the technical features of the metric construction of the texture where it has been weaved the Brand “Arnoldo Mondadori”. The lightweight transparency of I-MESH helps the visitors to travel through the different thematic areas where the light runs across the technical yarns of I-MESH separating yet creating continuity on a total surface of 750 sqm. I-MESH is very light, flexible and easily packed. Large areas of material are installed without the need of any special mechanical equipment. The components that make up for I-MESH are two: resin and yarn (Carbon, Basalt, Fiberglass, Technora and Zylon). Its recyclability is obtained through the re-melting of the matter.
Bronze Medal to Hotel Tofana in S. Cassiano in Badia Valley (IT). A aesthetically pleasing silhouette with its unique scenic entourage reflecting the shape of a tree-lined mountain peak.
Bronze medal for “RIVAMARE” by Officina Italiana Design. The Rivamare is an 11.88-metres (39 ft) motorboat with a maximum beam of 3.5 metres (11.6 ft). Thanks to seductively sporty new lines clothed in a sleek London Grey livery, it instantly steals the show with its meticulously clean, sinuous good looks. In fact, this is a yacht destined to make a major impact on the luxury nautical sector.
