Urbino Press Award goes to American journalist Gwen Ifill

The name of the winner of the 10th edition of the ‘Urbino Press Award’ was proclaimed by the Italian Ambassador to the United States Claudio Bisogniero on Thursday 16th, while Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi was on his way to the USA.

imagesThe prize goes this year to journalist and anchor-woman Gwen Ifill, moderator and news editor of ‘Washington Weekend’ and co-anchor-woman and co-head-editor of PBS News Hour – both broadcasted by Public Broadcasting Service.

The proclamation ceremony will take place tomorrow, April 22nd, at the Italian Embassy in Washington, whereas the prize will be actually given to the American journalist at the Ducal Palace in Urbino (a unique ‘Renaissance city’ – World Heritage site) next June.
