The president of Associazione Amici di Spoleto onlus, Candia Marcucci, along with the president of Fondazione Carispo di Spoleto, Salvatore Finocchi, will confer the 2021 Lex Spoletina to Luca Bernabei on the occasion of a ceremony at the Salone d’Onore of Palazzo Leti Sansi, Wednesday 15 September at 11.30.
The award was given by unanimous resolution of the Board of Directors on 25 October 2017, by the Associazione Amici di Spoleto to Luca Bernabei , managing director of LUX VIDE, for having conceived and produced the television series “Don Matteo” filmed in Spoleto and which has obtained and continues to obtain a great public reception; his editorial line, inspired by Christian values, has been happily combined with the beauty of the city, with its most illustrious monuments representing the most evident testimony to the history and culture of Spoleto.
Luca Bernabei is married to Paola Lucantoni and has six children. He loves his family and his country, Italy. Born in Rome in 1964, he graduated in Political Science at the University La Sapienza of Rome. He began his career working in advertising for major Italian agencies and trend-setting production companies. In 1994, he became an associate producer at Lux Vide, where he produced the international television series The Bible. In 2002, he was appointed Head of Production, taking charge of the entire production cycle of the audiovisual product, from creative development to post-production. He was then appointed CEO of Lux Vide in 2013. He has produced more than 100 projects and is currently involved in the production of several new series and projects for broadcasters and platforms.
“After the forced stop in 2020, the handing over of the Lex 2021 to Luca Bernabei,” says Candia Marcucci, “represents for the Association and for our city a courageous restart to look to the future and to the challenges to come, which must see us all committed to making Spoleto a true capital of culture in its broadest sense.”
Lex Spoletina – For years, the ‘Amici di Spoleto’ Association has used the reproduction of the Lex Spoletina (the stone cippus preserved in the Archaeological Museum, dating back to the 2nd century B.C., on which the text of a law protecting sacred woods is engraved) as an award for physical or legal persons who have contributed to the concrete defence of the historical, cultural and environmental heritage, the knowledge of the City and the development of its economy.
We would like to remind you that, in order to attend the ceremony, it is necessary to wear a mask, a GREEN PASS and a valid identity document, as required by current legislation, while places last.
