The America Award at Italian Parliament with the Italy-USA Foundation
Considering the uncertain international situation due the Covid-19 pandemic, unfortunately it is not possible to guarantee the XII edition of the America Award, usually scheduled in October.
As a sign of hope and optimism, however, we decided to open the procedure for the nominations.
The America Award is a prestigious recognition of great civil and institutional work. The award is mainly seen as a means to acknowledge and encourage initiatives and work aimed at favoring relationships between Europe and the United States of America. Clearly famous, eminent figures that have distinguished themselves in their work and have achieved the utmost excellence in their respective fields of interest and activities, and important results in favor of transatlantic friendship, will be considered.
