Savaglio receives "Made in Calabria" award
The organisation "Made in Calabria" honoured MPE scientist Sandra Savaglio in February 2011 with the international award for the section "World" during the event "Gran Gala delle eccelenze calabresi". The event took place in Rome in the presence of the city mayor. This prize recognises illustrious persons from Calabria, who have achieved a leading role in society in Calabria, in Rome, in Italy or worldwide. Within only a few months, this is already the second international award for Savaglio.
Each year, the award "Made in Calabria" is bestowed on personalities in the fields of culture, entertainment, journalism, companies, institutions, or sports, to honour their role as ambassadors of the region and to highlight them as role models for the younger generation in particular. Savaglio received the award in the category "world" for her internationally successful work in astrophysics. The other laureates are Guiseppe Mussari, president of the Italian association of banking houses, Pier Frencesoc Pingitore, producer and director in Italian television, and the singer and songwriter Peppe Voltarelli.
