GRAND PRIZE: Designer Fausto Puglisi was awarded the Guido Carli Prize, destined to those national entrepreneurs and creative talents who stand out with their excellence, professionalism and dedication.

The Roberto Cavalli creative director was among the 12 recipients of this year’s prize, now in its 15th edition. The award ceremony was held Friday at Rome’s Auditorium Parco della Musica, a multipurpose space in the Italian capital that is home to the Rome Film Festival. 

The prize was established by Romana Liuzzo to celebrate the memory of her late grandfather Guido Carli, who was president of the Italian bank for 15 years, as well as minister of the treasury in the late ’80s and early ’90s and president of Confindustria, the association of Italian entrepreneurs.

Other personalities awarded on Friday included film director Ferzan Özpetek; Francesco and Rossella Cerea, the siblings behind luxury restaurant group Da Vittorio, and Simone Marchetti, editor in chief of Vanity Fair Italy and European editorial director at Vanity Fair, among others. 

This is not the first time a personality from the fashion world has received the special recognition. Past recipients of the Guido Carli Prize from the fashion industry include Saint Laurent’s president and chief executive officer and Kering deputy CEO Francesca Bellettini; designer Alberta Ferretti; former Yoox Net-a-porter chairman Federico Marchetti; Dior womenswear, accessories and haute couture artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri; Moncler’s chairman and chief executive officer Remo Ruffini, and former Brooks Brothers president and CEO Claudio Del Vecchio.
