The 62nd Festival of 2Worlds marks an important anniversary for the “Una Finestra sui DueMondi”/A Window on TwoWorlds Award: it’s tenth edition. Strongly desired by the Monini family, the award was in fact established in 2010 after the Monini Foundation, headed by Maria Flora Monini, had bought the house of Maestro Giancarlo Menotti, founder of the Festival of Spoleto. From the window of Casa Menotti the Maestro looked out to greet the audience of the 2Worlds together with the great artists of the Festival. The Monini Foundation has not only recovered the house to create a museum and a documentation center on the Festival, but has also wanted to bring back the tradition of that greeting. So each year the “Una Finestra sui DueMondi” Award is assigned to a great artist of the Festival and the Special Award “Una Finestra sui DueMondi” to a young emerging talent. Traditionally the winners are immortalized by a photo-shoot at the window of Casa Menotti, immediately after the awards ceremony.
