Urbino Press Award, a bridge between the Marche Region and the Unites States

The journalist of the New York Times, Mark Mazzetti, is the winner of the 2016 Urbino Press Award, the Italian prize that is awarded every year to American reporters who distinguished themselves for their work during the year, by informing the general public. The award was conferred on 2 July during a ceremony held in the Grand Hall of the Ducal Palace of Urbino at the attendance, among others, of the President of the Marche Region, Luca Ceriscioli, and the Mayor of Urbino, Maurizio Gambini. The award was sponsored by the Marche Region, the City of Urbino, the Italian Embassy and Cultural Institute in Washington, the Chamber of Commerce of Pesaro and Urbino and the Fashion House Piero Guidi. “This award – said Mr Ceriscioli – is a bridge between the Marche Region and the United States and is one of the most important activities in the relations between the two Countries. The fact that the Award is conferred in Urbino, a city full of beautiful landmarks, is instrumental to internationalising the city and to establishing international economic, tourist and promotional ties. The meeting I recently had in Washington was very significant; now it is time to develop and consolidate relations with a view to concretising the international opportunities that the Region intends to pursue.” The Urbino Press Award was previously conferred to: Diane Rehm, Michael Weisskopf, Martha Raddatz, Thomas Friedman, David Ignatius, Helene Cooper, Sebastian Rotella, Wolf Blitzer and Maria Bartiromo.
