MINERVA PRIZE is the first Italian award dedicated predominantly to Women, now in its 26th 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 because of their professional capability and the positive values. The Prize is also assigned to a man, for the professional and human contribution given to society. The best way of explaining what the Minerva Prize is to define it as “the Holding Company of Knowledge”. It is the top of the iceberg of the multinational 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 Countries.
As per tradition, the Ceremony will be opened by the What’s Up International Award for Young Talents, this years in its IX Edition. Chaired by Riccardo SEVERI, the “youngsters” award was created with the intent to discover new talents of tomorrow.
This year, the winners are Francesca BOSCO – What’s Up Award To fight against cybercrime -, project officer for the Emerging Crimes Unit at the UNICRI (United nations interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute). She is specialized in programs to combat cybercrime and organized crime. And Valerio CIOTOLA, Raul FORSONI, Andrea GUAZZIERI – GFC Architecture (What’s Up Award to Architecture) for their winning project that will redesign the Science Centre of Naples burned down on March 4 two years ago.
The XXVI Edition of the Minerva Prize Anna Maria Mammoliti will take place on Thursday, 26th of November 2015, at 7.30pm, in Rome, at the Protomoteca Hall in Campidoglio with the Medal of the Presidency of the Italian Republic and with the Patronage of: Senate, Chamber of Deputies, the Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Regione Lazio, Roma Capitale, Commissione delle Elette di Roma Capitale.
