Graduation prize in memory of Linda Cena
Bracco Foundation has instituted, as part of progettoDiventerò, the “Linda Cena” prize for the best degree thesis on the relationships between the public and private sector in developing the cultural heritage.
After a first edition, focused on the relationship between companies and cultural institutions and won by Vanessa Speziale, the second edition now begins, dedicated to studying in depth the new models of public-private collaboration for the support and development of cultural heritage.
The initiative is part of the Comitato Leonardo Qualità Italia programme, which each year, to promote the image of Italy as a country, presents a number of prizes in a ceremony at the Palazzo del Quirinale. Among these the Comitato Leonardo each year awards Graduation Prizes to young graduates who have produced excellent theses on subjects relating to the success of Made in Italy generally or in specific sectors.
The Graduation Prize is named in memory of Linda Cena, General Secretary of Bracco Foundation who died prematurely in January 2012, to recall the extraordinary professionalism with which she contributed to the creation of the foundation, working with passion and organisational ability in particular in the sector of relationships between companies and culture.
