Juventus Managing Director and CFO Aldo Mazzia this afternoon received the “Premio Valdo Fusi – Torino Libera”, an award given by the Centro Mario Pannunzio of Turin every year to local individuals who have distinguished themselves in work or projects that have been incisive and anti-conformist, carried out "in a free spirit".
The award is also a recognition of the work done by individuals from the world of culture who, throughout their career, have managed to look beyond national borders and carry out their work with a cosmopolitan and international prospective. Mazzia was commended in recognition for his commitment with Juventus in the redevelopment of the Continassa area, work which will have a positive impact on the City of Turin.
The Mario Pannunzio Cultural Centre, awarded the Italian Order of Merit for Culture and Art by the President of the Italian Republic in 1978, was founded in 1968 by Arrigo Olivetti, Mario Soldati and Pier Franco Quaglieni.
The 2014 ceremony, held this afternoon at the Palazzo Cisterna in Turin, also saw Italian missionary father Piero Gallo, writer Margherita Oggero, Army General Ennio Bietti, as well as the author and president of the “Il Mondo delle Idee” association, Chicca Morrone, pick up the coveted awards.
