GOLDEN LION FOR LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT TO THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN SCIENTIST ANTONIO GIORDANO

The Award is for an ITALIAN SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE IN THE WORLD AND THE INTERNATIONAL STUDY ON THE CORRELATION BETWEEN HEALTH AND POLLUTION IN THE LAND OF FIRE IN CAMPANIA

 

GIORDANO: “A SMALL REDEMPTION FOR A LAND tortured BY POLLUTERS. WE WILL NOT LET OUR GUARD ON THE INJUSTICE OF THE restitution to THE PELLINI

 

Venice recognizes the work of the Italian American scientist Antonio Giordano, President and founder of the Sbarro Health Research Organization (SHRO) at Temple University USA and Professor of Anatomy and Pathological Histology of the University of Siena, for demonstrating the correlation between health and pollution, particularly in Campania with the Terra dei Fuochi.


The Golden Lion for legality was awarded to the father of the studies that demonstrated the connection between the illicit waste landfilling and tumor pathologies in Campania.


The award represents the recognition for scientific research on cancer and for the courage to have revealed the links between waste management, controlled by the Camorra, and the incidence of cancer in the Campania region.

This prize presentation takes place a few hours after the filing of the Supreme Court ruling, which released all assets confiscated from the members of the Pellini family, convicted of environmental crimes and responsible for the environmental disaster that Professor Giordano fought and continues to fight.

 

The anti-mafia magistrate Catello Maresca, now president of the legality section of the Golden Lion award in Venice, proposed this recognition to the jury of the Venice grand prize. He was in charge of many investigations against the Casalesi clan who poisoned the lands between Naples and Caserta.

 

“Just as the assets of the Pellinis, the entrepreneurs involved in the illicit trafficking of waste, have being released from seizure, the recognition is a significant gesture, of taking a stance on legality and justice, a cry to keep the attention high on this increasingly current problem. With my team we will never lower our guard to continue to protect a tormented land like Campania from environmental criminals. Even in a very difficult moment for the fight against the Camorra, in which procedural delays throw away years of investigations and successes of the State against the clans, we must not lose hope and continue the battle for legality even in schools to spread the anti-mafia culture” declare Giordano and Maresca.

 

The Italian-American scientist is at the center of these news for his substantial contribution to the emergence of the phenomenon of the Land of Fires, with a scientific study which was included in the book "Rubbish of the State" and which brought to the attention of the Prosecutor's Office many illegal realities in Campania, now receives an award dedicated to Italian excellence. This award allows him to continue his mission against illegality and maintain high public attention on a deeply rooted issue more important now that world tries face important environmental issues and to assume a sustainable identity.

 

The awards ceremony in Venice at the Palazzo della Regione Veneto, chaired by Sileno Candelaresi, brings together every year awardees, which constitute a mix of Italian and international excellence in the field of entrepreneurship, sport and culture.
