by the Fryderyk Chopin Institute (NIFC).


On Thursday, 31 July 2008, the Jury of the Competition for the Concept
of the Exhibition at the Fryderyk Chopin Museum, chaired by professor
Irena Poniatowska, decided to award the first prize (50 000 Euro) to the Italian design company Migliore + Servetto Architetti Associati from Milan. The second prize went to the  Polish firm Govenlock Studio Projektowe from Warsaw.
