Anna Maria Mammoliti
MINERVA PRIZE, the first Italian award dedicated predominantly to Women, now in its 29th Edition, and since 2009 known as the Anna Maria Mammoliti Minerva Prize in memory of its founder, is assigned to women who operate in “knowledge” fields, which they represent symbolically, and who because of their professional capability and the positive values which they uphold are female role models. The Prize is also assigned to a man, for the professional and human contribution he has given to society. The Prize consists of a precious pin who central element is a representation of Minerva’s head designed for the Prize by Renato Guttuso.
The best way of explaining what the Minerva Prize is, is to define it as “the Holding Company of Knowledge”. It is the tip of the iceberg of the multinational of female intelligence which we have managed to highlight not only with the Minerva Prize, but also with our programme of international meetings with women from other continents: China, Japan, India, Canada, North America, South America, Africa and Asia.
