The Perini Navi Group, a leader in the design and production of large sailing and motor yachts, is showing its support of young talents and is promoting young graduates that write their thesis on topics relevant to the success of products for the nautical sector that are Made in Italy, by creating two scholarships for projects promoted by the Comitato Leonardo.
The Comitato Leonardo, currently headed by the entrepreneur Luisa Todini, was created in 1993 on the shared initiative of Sen. Sergio Pininfarina and Sen. Gianni Agnelli, of Confindustria, of the ICE and of a group of entrepreneurs with the objective to promote Italy as a country as a whole through various initiatives that would display the innovative business qualities, the artistic creativity and the refined culture that lie behind products manufactured here and the country’s lifestyle.
The initiative behind the Premi di Laurea, launched for the first time by the Comitato Leonardo in 1997, has already rewarded 100 brilliant young graduates. There are 9 partners who, again this year have participated in the program by creating no less than 11 scholarships worth €3,000 each.
Luisa Todini said, “The objective of the Premi di Laurea project is to give a voice to young talent by supporting the best thesis and the most innovative ideas that put into light the best of Italy today in various sectors and that give body to new ideas for the development of our economy. Perini Navi and all of the other companies that are associated with this project represent the best of what we call Made in Italy and they intend to support and promote the talent of the new generations that represent the future of our country.”
The “Premio Perini Navi Group” is in its sixth edition this year and will sponsor two scholarships worth €3,000 each.
The scholarships will be awarded at the Quirinale during the ceremony for the Premi Leonardo with the Presidente della Repubblica Italiana present.
