In 1996, the Fondazione Mediterraneo instituted the Mediterranean Awards (with various categories) that are granted every year to eminent personalities from the worlds of arts and culture, politics and science and social disciplines, whose actions have contributed to reducing tensions, breaking down cultural barriers and developing shared values in the Greater Mediterranean.

This Award is considered one of the most prestigious acknowledgements in the world.

Various events are associated with the Mediterranean Award, such as the “Euro-Mediterranean Concert for Dialogue Among Cultures” and the “Epiphany Concert” (organized by the Cultural Centre “Oltre il Chiostro” in collaboration with the Fondazione Mediterraneo. The latter event is broadcast by RaiUno and Rai International throughout the world every year on the morning of January 6th).



The "Medal of Honor for Social Solidarity" of the MEDITERRANEAN AWARD was attributed by the international juries to the memory of Luciano Tavazza.
On this occasion, international juries also awarded the title "Ambassador of the United States of the World".
The award was presented to the widow Nilla Manzi Tavazza by the president of the Association Tavazza Domenico De Simone and by Pia Molinari in the presence of representatives from various countries and institutions.
