After four decades of absence, Castelsardo’s Journalism Prize represents a return to a coveted recognition not only in the rooms of the Castello della Rocca tomorrow – which in the past went to names of first magnitude such as Enzo Biagi, Indro Montanelli and Eugenio Scalfari – but a glimmer of attention to the meaning of a profession going through a difficult period, squeezed between the industrial crisis on the one hand and the wave of fake news on the other.

«The spirit of business, its real salt – said yesterday the director of Nuova Antonio di Rosa at the time of the award of Luigi Sorriga and Piera Cerucci, an award named after Giovanni Canu – lies in the daily work of the reporter .
