Venice, July 24, 2019 - A map of Venice from which emerges the Grand Canal, the Rialto Bridge, the gondola iron and the silhouettes of running athletes. On the back, the Lion of San Marco which establishes the time of each athlete. These are the elements used by Eleonora De Luca, the 34-year-old interior designer from Treppo Grande who now lives in London. Her design was the most voted: 1,245 "Like" received only in the single day of the final, and about 3,000 during all the competition.
