Domenico Mottola is the winner of the International Competition of Musical Performance for Guitar, at its XXIII edition. “My last name brought me luck”, says ironically the young winner, born in 1993 and coming from Naples who, in past editions, already won the second and the third prize.
The prestigious competition, linked to the International Guitar Festival - City of Mottola, continues to register a great attention by young students of guitar who choose this corner of Apulia in order to put themselves out there. And indeed, this year some candidates came from around the world: Poland, Germany, France, USA (Los Angeles and West Columbia, in particular), Serbia and Italy.
To declare the winners was a jury composed by top-level guitarists, chaired by Roberto Aussel. With him, Gabriel Guillén, Boško Radojković, Alessandro Deiana and Lapo Vannucci. Domenico Mottola brings home € 3.000, equally funded by City of Mottola (delivered by the town councillor, Valerio Rota) and Lions Club Massafra - Mottola “Le Cripte” (delivered by the President, Salvatore Marchionna). But it’s not all: Mottola has also received a contract with dotGuitar WebLabel for the distribution of a CD for guitar on world’s largest channels of digital distribution.
No second prize. The scholarship of €1.000 foreseen for the second prize has been rewarded with the winners of the third prize. 
Third placed ex aequo among Riccardo Calogiuri (from Lecce, 1990), Carlotta Dalia (from Grosseto, 1999) and Pauline Gauthey (from Lille, France, 1993) winnig € 500 euro each, as a scholarship made available by the City of Mottola. 
The absolute winner of the International Competition for Young Guitarists, Gianluca Cappetta, won a guitar “Mottola Guitars”, offered by Art Communication and delivered by the commercial director, Angelo Suma. All the prizewinners have also received Savarez strings and the book about the 25th edition of the Festival.
Words of emotion by the artistic director, Maestro Michele Libraro, during the evening dedicated to the prizes that, as a tradition, closes the Festival. “It’s been a fantastic edition - he said - a lot of musical proposals and a great audience success”. Then he has recalled these 25 years of manifestation, enclosed in a commemorative book. “It was June 28, 1992 - as he wrote in the introduction - when this travel, called Festival, began its way. I never imagined that the first edition, with four concerts and a summer course of guitar, would have reached the goal of 25 editions”. The municipal administration of Mottola applauds the event. “The International Festival - as underlined by the town councillor, Valerio Rota – brings the name of Mottola around the world. It’s to be considered the flagship of the cultural offer of our city”.
