Numerous also the top exponents of Italian institutions attended the award ceremony: Roberto Gualtieri, Mayor of Roma Capitale; Andrea Abodi, Minister for Sport and Youth; Lorenzo Marinone, Delegate of the Mayor for Youth Policies of Roma Capitale; Carlo Corazza, Director of the European Parliament Offices in Italy; Elena Grech, Deputy Chief European Commission Representation in Italy; Francesco Tufarelli, Director General of the Presidency of the Council; Alessandro Coppola, Director of Innovation and Development at ENEA; Roberto Sgalla, Director of the Center for American Studies. “It is an important appointment, we are happy to host it in Rome because we are increasingly characterizing the city as a great capital of innovation, young people and startups. We are calling together the best energies and intelligence to help us improve the city. I young people must once again be protagonists of the relaunch of Rome”, said the Mayor of Rome, Roberto Gualtieri.
“We need to give young people the opportunity to carry out their business projects. There are many proposals that we receive and we, as a Government, have a duty to include innovative realities in the productive economic circuit and we must favor the loan of honor which must be promoted more because it is important to show confidence in those who represent our future,” said Andrea Abodi, Minister for Sport and Youth. “We have to invest in their accountability. Right now, as an institution, we are working on the concept of responsibility and its discipline. Responsibility, in fact, must be a consequence of the so-called discipline of merit. Only in this way can we make a difference. It will certainly take time and I’m ready to start a journey aimed at the re-evaluation of values that have been mortified for a long time”.
