Fondazione Mostra Internazionale d’Illustrazione per l’Infanzia “Štěpán Zavřel”. Sarmede (Treviso, Italy)
The Štěpán Zavřel Foundation is involved in research and education in the field of editorial illustration for children. It was born from the artistic and human experience of master Štěpán Zavřel (Prague, 1932 – Sarmede, 1999) who in 1968 chose Sarmede as the ideal place for art. The small town in the Province of Treviso (Veneto Region) soon became a reference point for the world of illustration, frequented by young talents fascinated by the teachings of the master and by the idea of the illustrated book intended as a work of art. The heritage of artistic and didactic knowledge becomes a concrete experience in the annual International Exhibition of Illustration for Children Le immagini della fantasia and in the International School of Illustration.
