The event dedicated to ethics and fair play celebrated its 25th anniversary with a grand finale that welcomed great Italian and international sporting stars

The XXV Menarini International Fair Play awards ceremony saw a genuine outpouring of emotions, with illustrious guests and true legends of Italian and world sport. This 2021 edition was truly special as the event dedicated to ethics and fair play returned, following the restrictions in 2020, with a full programme to celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary. Stars of the Italian and international sporting worlds shone bright, offering messages of trust, commitment and great humanity through their stories.

“Today we are celebrating the first twenty-five years of the Menarini Fair Play Award: an incredible result in an exceptional year for Italian sport” declared Ennio Troiano, Menarini Global HR Director, “We hope that the values of fair play, founded on sharing principles that represent the true essence of sport, can help us to look toward the future with optimism.”

The “Narrare le emozioni” (Narrating Emotions) category went to Mediaset sports journalist Lucia Blini, and the “Sustenium Energia e Cuore” (Sustenium Energy and Heart) award went to former referee Pierluigi Collina.
