Dedalo Minosse Cinema was born as a spinoff of the Dedalo Minosse International Prize for commissioning a building that ALA has been organizing in Vicenza every two years for more than twenty years, promoting exhibitions, meetings and debates attracting important international architects and clients to prestigious buildings designed by Palladio such as Teatro Olimpico and Palazzo Valmarana Braga.
