“An event which has become famous globally, an instrument for promoting the territory, the culture and the Italian excellence in the world”. With this motivation, Umbria Jazz artistic director Carlo Pagnotta was awarded the “Perugino nel mondo” (Perugian man in the world) by President of the Chamber of Commerce of Umbria Giorgio Mencaroni at the 69th Award Ceremony of Work and Enterprise.
Established 69 years ago, in 1952, the Work and Enterprise Award gives the right recognition to men and women who have been able to live a good working life by always taking inspiration from fundamental values such as dedication, constant commitment, sense of duty, loyalty, responsibility. And honesty.
“Two words: pride and gratitude. That’s how I feel and maybe today we all feel the same”, Giorgio Mencaroni said.
