Vittoria Alata (winged Victory statue)
Explanation:
It seems from this reference that the premio Moretto presents the winner with a winged Victory award and not a Venus. In that case I understand it to mean that the artist was at the prize giving ceremony as a special guest and presented the statuette to the winner of that year's contest.

Asker: I have sent another message to the client.
