The European Heritage Awards Ceremony 2021 took place on 23 September at the Giorgio Cini Foundation. High level representatives from the European Commission and Europa Nostra paid tribute to the winners of the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards 2021. "At a moment when Europe is determined to build back better, these success stories are a true inspiration and a powerful example of what we, as Europeans, can achieve together," emphasised Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth.
"I congratulate each one of you for contributing to Our Europe of Culture and to a 'Europe with a soul'," stated Europa Nostra Executive President Hermann Parzinger. During the ceremony, the four Grand Prix laureates and the Public Choice Award winner, selected from among this year's 24 winners from 18 countries, were announced. On this occasion, the two winners of the ILUCIDARE Special Prizes 2021, for excellence in heritage-led innovation and heritage-led international relations, were also unveiled. The ceremony was accompanied by a musical programme performed by musicians of the European Union Youth Orchestra. Watch the full video of the Ceremony in English & Italian.
