“Light as Aluminum”

The theme of the fourth edition of the COMEL Award is ‘lightness’, a feature that has made this metal one of the most used material worldwide in the areas of production and transport.

Aluminum and its alloys have enabled man to take epochal challenges that have marked the history of mankind, and that still characterizes contemporary society: from large intercontinental trips by air and by sea to projects that have sent man into space.

On the other hand, lightness is not just a physical property, it has many other forms, reflected in the emotional and psychic sphere of man and also present in his metaphorical and creative universe. The lightness of aluminum inspires other feelings of lightness, of being, imagination and reality.
