MEDITERRANEAN AWARD "SILVER DOLPHIN"
to the memory of MANUEL VAZQUEZ MONTALBAN
Writer, SPAIN

A great Spanish writer, Manuel Vázquez Montalbán told the story of today’s society with irony and acumen through his main character: Pepe Carvalho. He was among the first to join the Fondazione Mediterraneo and this acknowledgment is not meant to be an institutional award, but rather a great warm remembrance from his “Mediterranean family”. For this reason the Fondazione Mediterraneo attributed to the memory of Manuel Vázquez Montalbán the Mediterranean Award “Delfino d’Argento” 2004‑2005.

MEDITERRANEAN AWARD FOR MEDIA
AL-BAYANE
National Newspaper, MAROCCO

Journalism is a constant, difficult and quite often risky commitment but it is an essential instrument for the development of a democratic society. The Award to “Al Bayane” is meant to emphasize the activity of this great journal in a moment of transition involving all Islamic societies, among which Moroccan society represents one of the most delicate points of passage. In the alternation of Governments – wanted by H.M. Hassan II as an essential mark of the democratisation process – “Al Bayane”, with its political director Ismail Alaoui, has contributed and still contributes to spread the values of dialogue and peace.
