The awards ceremony took place on 5 September at 11:00, during an event in Florence, in the presence of Giuseppe Antoci and Salvatore Calleri, in the garden named after “Nonno Nino” as everyone likes to remember.
The Omcom winners are Alessio Ribaudo, Cecilia Sandroni and Gianni Scarpace for information, Walter Ganapini for the environment and Gerardo Mastrodomenico for legality.
This year one of the winners was Cecilia Sandroni (in connection from Venice to the Film Festival), the only woman awarded today, for her commitment in denouncing environmental crime active in the Val di Cornia and Tuscany area. She is an international journalist of culture and human rights, founder of the ItaliensPR international platform and member of the Foreign Press of Rome.
September 5 is a significant date as it celebrates the 101st anniversary of the birth of the magistrate Antonino Caponnetto, symbol of the anti-mafia. With this recognition we intend to honor the incisive and daily work in defense of information
