The scholarship, which before the Covid-19 pandemic was delivered during the Vitale Onlus Spring Grand Gala under the High Patronage of the Chamber of Deputies, in 2021 will be awarded during the international GeoAdriatico symposium.

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
