Mission

Helping children has always been the mission of the Fondazione Luchetta Ota D’Angelo Hrovatin and the Marco Luchetta International Press Award is dedicated to children’s rights: a watchful eye on the trenches and slums around the world, where those rights are violated. For 17 years the Premio Luchetta has collected and shared thousands of reports from the most extreme areas of the planet, done by journalists who often risk their own lives.

The Award provides a look at the "world that does" and a great opportunity to turn the spotlight on the most dramatic realities, lifting the veil of indifference to the tragedies that occur around the world, respecting ethnic and political diversity, peaceful coexistence and especially awareness of the protection of children, victims of all forms of violence.

About Us

The Marco Luchetta International Press Award was born in 2004, on the tenth anniversary of the tragic death of the  first RAI reporters who lost their lives on a work-related mission: Marco Luchetta, Alessandro Ota and Dario D'Angelo,  Trieste RAI journalists, were killed in Mostar Est in January 1994 while they were shooting a TG1 news special to propose the children victims of the Balkan war as candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize and, only two months later, another RAI cameraman from Trieste, Miran Hrovatin was murdered in Somalia together with the journalist Ilaria Alpi.

The Premio Luchetta was established by the non-profit organisation Fondazione Luchetta Ota D'Angelo Hrovatin from Trieste, founded in the aftermath of the tragic events in Mostar and Mogadishu to welcome and treat children who were victims of the atrocities of the Balkan conflict. Since then, the main mission of the Luchetta Foundation has been to welcome and treat children from all over the world suffering from diseases that cannot be cured in their countries of origin. The Premio Luchetta was created in order to raise awareness for the rights of the youngest and most defenceless victims, in memory of the RAI correspondents Marco Luchetta, Alessandro Ota, Dario D'Angelo and Miran Hrovatin who sacrificed their lives to tell the story of war with words of peace.
