De Virgiliis

Alfonso De Virgiliis created the Galileo 2000 Prize in 1996, in recognition of eminent figures in the music scene and artists in their process of affirmation.

His love for all forms of artistic and cultural expression, for universal themes such as peace, dialogue between peoples and religions, sustainable economy, Europe, pushed him to broaden the boundaries of the Prize, which has been set as a recognition to the action of those who received it in favor of man and his highest values.
