Premio Capaccini supports the progression of outstanding students for the 19th consecutive year

Pieve Santo Stefano, 2nd November 2014;

The 19th Premio Capaccini was awarded to six star students from the picturesque surrounding areas of the Tratos Cavi Headquarters in Tuscany. A celebration of outstanding achievement in middle and high school, the long-standing scheme awards students who achieved full marks in their examinations in the past academic year with a cash prize intended to encourage further academic achievement. Premio Capaccini was created in memory of the founder of Tratos Cavi – Egidio Capaccini.

Middle school award-winners were:

  • Antonelli Irene
  • Caminati Martina
  • Pisani Arianna
  • Censotti Irene

High school award-winners were:

  • Donati Sarti Marco (100/100)
  • Finocchi Gianluca (100/100) (Technical College for Geometry)

The ceremony started with a band parade from Piazza Plinio Pellegrini to the War Memorial, where the National Anthem and a local song – l’Inno del Piave – were performed. The participants also paid their respects to those who lost their lives in the First World War.

The parade was followed by a mass at the Collegiate Church and the prize-giving ceremony conducted by Egidio’s daughter, Marta Capaccini, and Albano Bragagni, his son-in-law.

Albano Bragagni remarked: “It is an honour to congratulate these students for their excellent results. The Premio Capaccini was created to recognise the excellence of individuals and to support them on their personal journey of academic growth. This value is one that sits deeply within the company’s foundations.”
