In un’area fuori concorso grande rilievo è stato dato ai produttori di abiti liturgici che si sono cimentati con nuovi modelli, diversi da quelli che solitamente appaiono nei patinati cataloghi. La rassegna internazionale Koinè si svolge a Vicenza ogni due anni. Koinè Ricerca, la sezione dedicata alla ricerca, elemento centrale della manifestazione, offre al mondo produttivo del settore un contributo di idee e proposte innovative grazie alla presenza costante di architetti, designers e liturgisti. Giuria di Koinè Ricerca Mons. Arch. Giancarlo Santi, presidente Comitato Scientifico; Mons.

The 11th edition of Koinè concluded after a great reception by the public. The exhibition of liturgical furnishings and elements for religious buildings also explored today’s directions and trends in religious vestments. The monographic theme of Koinè 2005 was “The Chasuble”, an issue that has already been approached in one of the first editions of the exhibition. Koinè this year did not focus simply on those who design or produce liturgical vestments, but also on those who wear them – the priests. The chasuble show was organised in a number of sections: a significant area was dedicated to the competition, in which Italy’s most respected textile artists participated, creating entirely hand-woven garments. The winner of the show competition was a monk, Father Vittorio Buset, whose proposal was chosen for its high quality
material and sartorial work, and for the brilliance of its colours. Second prize went to Cristina Busnelli, for the refined textile effect achieved using different polychrome fibres. The third prize went to the entry by Agnese Pecorari, selected for the original decoration across the entire surface of the chasuble, achieved with a special printing technique. Given the overall high quality of the entries, the panel also awarded two special mentions, one to Federica Vignaga and one to internationally renowned producer Marisa Bronzini. The prominent fashion designer Nanni Strada was also invited to participate in the events surrounding the competition. The event also involved the participation of major textile art schools working in fabric design and yarn research. Their creativity significantly contributed to the prestige of the initiative.
