The Award

The Italy-USA Foundation promoted the sixth edition of the America Award; it 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 favouring relationships between Italy and the United States of America. Prominent personalities of any nationality who stand out for their work and results in promoting transatlantic friendship will be considered. The 2014 ceremony was held in Rome at the Chamber of Deputies, on Thursday October 9, at 5 PM, with the journalist Michele Cucuzza. The Italy-USA Foundation, in the frame of the America Award, also conferred three medals of the Italian Parliament to three students of American universities, Diedré Blake, Neal Huddon-Cossar, Challis Popkey, and a special award in memory of Sergio Leone, film director and producer.
