The awards ceremony

The annual awards ceremony held each year in the early summer is traditionally an important event in Rome’s cultural life. The choice of location often relates to the background of the members of the Foreign Press Club, and is held at official institutional residences, embassies or cultural institutions, like France’s Villa Medici and Germany’s Palazzo Massimo.

In 2019 the awards ceremony and gala evening took place in the stunning location of Villa Wolkonsky, the official residence of the British ambassador in Italy.

In 2021, for once, the ceremony was held at the Auditorium, Rome’s temple of culture.
