“35 years of the Masi Prize marks an important milestone and gives this event a longevity which very few other awards can claim. This achievement has been made possible thanks to the committment of the Boscaini family, the Masi company and its Foundation and also the network of individuals who, over the years, have dedicated themselves to finding key players who most express the strength of a civilisation and its history”. Thus affirmed Sandro Boscaini, President of Masi Agricola, as he opened the ceremonial signing of the historic cask at the 35th edition of the Masi Prize, awarded this year to Giosetta Fioroni, Lorenzo Mattotti, Natalino Balasso, (Civiltà Veneta), Roger Scruton (Civiltà del vino) and Ágnes Heller (Grosso d’Oro Veneziano).
A ‘multifaceted’ culture, embracing modernity and the challenges of our times, as expressed by the prize-winners of this year’s edition, shows us once more its scope by encompassing a wide range of areas and diciplines (painting, theatre, cartoons, literature and philosophy), which have in common with wine and , in particular, Amarone those deep values: identity, territory and quest.
For Isabella Bossi Fedrigotti, President of the Masi Foundation: “For 35 years, by choosing the protagonists of the Masi Prize, we have revealed a great and vibrant culture which, despite the crises of modern times, lives amongst us and permeates through the fabric of our society. In the future we will strive to shine a spotlight on the efforts of the young who are facing this reality, in order to highlight their creative genius”.
