My dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce you that, as member of the Jury of the International Minerva Prize, I will awardMrs. Conchita Poncini with the official Acknowledgment for her activities of woman who, during her life, stood up for human rights’ protection.

The Minerva Award can be defined as the “Holding of the Knowledge”, or the “Tip of the Iceberg” of the multinational of women’s intelligence. The Prize consists of a gold and gemstones pin representing Minerva’s head, designed by the Master Renato Guttuso. The award enjoys the support of the President of the Italian Republic.

The awards ceremony will be held on 26th November in Rome, by the Campidoglio, the headquarter of the Municipality of the City of Rome, as well as a historical and artistic site during the Roman Empire and the Middle Age period.

The event will be attended by the Highest Offices of State, and by personalities of the world of arts and culture.

Kind regards,

Simone Ovart
