On December 6th, the awards ceremony for the sixth edition of the Premio ANGI 2023, promoted by the Italian National Association of Young Innovators (ANGI), took place in Rome, at the Temple of Vibia Sabina and Hadrian. Among the young companies that received awards for the innovative value of their projects, the winner of the first prize in the 'Wellness & Digital Health' category was the start-up Salute360, while Reefilla triumphed in the 'Future Mobility & Proptech' category.

The award plaque received by Alberto Clemenzi, CEO of Salute360, was presented by Fabio Minoli Rota, Director of Communications, Institutional Relations and Sustainability at Bayer. "Salute360 once again proves to be a winning solution in the area of digital health dedicated on the one hand to healthcare professionals and on the other hand to patients," commented Clemenzi. "It was an honour to be awarded as the only innovative company in the Wellness & Digital Health category, and the event provided an excellent opportunity for discussion with all the institutional and industry speakers who attended the awards ceremony."

The Future Mobility & Proptech award was instead presented by Domenico De Rosa, CEO of SMET, to Marco Bevilacqua, Co-Founder & Executive Officer of Reefilla, ex-aequo with Casavo. "The Future Mobility & Proptech category recognises leaders and organisations driving transformative advances in the mobility industry. This award is a testament to Marco's visionary leadership and the innovative strides Reefilla is making to revolutionise the future of sustainable mobility," commented the start-up. "We are proud to be at the forefront of shaping the solutions of tomorrow and we sincerely thank the National Association of Young Innovators and its president Gabriele Ferrieri for recognising Reefilla's commitment to shaping a greener and more efficient future."

Gabriele Ferrieri, president of ANGI, said: "This sixth edition highlights even more the importance of investing in topics such as artificial intelligence, robotics, smart payments, new enabling technologies linked to the world of large-scale distribution, health, and the context of ecological and energy transition. We, as the National Association of Young Innovators, are here at the forefront to seal this tribute to great Italian excellence and, above all, as a point of reference for innovation in Italy to demonstrate the importance of supporting the future generations, the ecosystem of innovation, enterprises and start-ups."

Also present at the ceremony was the Italian Minister for the Environment and Energy Security, Gilberto Pichetto Fratin, who commented: "This is an important day, celebrating a challenge: that of accompanying young people towards innovation. Never before has there been such a need to grow on the front of research, experimentation, new knowledge, in creating new models of balance that arise from technology."
