History

 

An award for those who have searched OUT and recounted, over the course of their entire career, the truth through the mass communication media. A prize for Ischia, an island that has always been at the crossroads of different cultures, a bridge between European cultural traditions and those of the Mediterranean.” 

Giuseppe Valentino wrote these words thirty years ago when he brought to life the first edition of the Premio Ischia. And the event has faithfully adhered the original spirit of those days: in almost forty years it has followed the news as they unwound, growing together with a society in which the role of communications became increasingly more important. The list of winners with the names of the chief representantives of national and international news scene of the thirty six years bears witness to this constant commitment. The Premio begins in 1980, the initiative of Giuseppe Valentino, an Ischitan journalist in love with his island. An active and far reaching love. If the Premio since its begginings wanted to underline the importance of the news by recognizing its most important names, the professional and ethical values of the journalists chosen, it also wanted to draw the attention to the stage-location of the prize-giving, Ischia. It has stood out in the past years for an intense cultural activity addressed most of all to journalism and to the relationships between the world of the press and the other sectors of culture and economy.
