This is the second year of the Gloria e Marco Award, set up in memory of two talented young Italian architects who perished in the Grenfell Fire in June 2017. We will be announcing our second GeM Scholar on the evening of Saturday May 4th 2019 at the Villa Saraceno; designed by Palladio in c.1550 and managed by the Landmark Trust.
