Mondardini, Mantovani and Proietti win the ‘Rome Award’
The prize-giving ceremony of the annual ‘Rome Award for development in Italy’ (Premio Roma per lo sviluppo del Paese) took place today in the Sala della Protomoteca in Piazza Capitoline in Rome. The 'Rome Award' is given to individuals in business, science, society and culture who have made a special contribution to Italy’s development and prestige.
The award, promoted by the magazine ‘Tempo Finanziario’ with the patronage of Roma Capitale and the Regional Authority of Lazio, is in its second year and aims to be an incentive for the renaissance of Rome.
The 2016 award has been given to Monica Mondardini, CEO of CIR Group and of Gruppo Editoriale L’Espresso, and to Alberto Mantovani, immunologist, scientific director of Humanitas and professor at the Humanitas University.
A further award was given to Gigi Proietti, in recognition of his career as an actor, comedian, singer, voice-dubber and writer.
Monica Mondardini's award cited her “extraordinary managerial ability” and how she had “led, in a strong and intelligent manner the most complex Italian publishing group” and had “envisaged the opportunity for an ambitious project of cultural integration and consolidation in the media sector”.
