Giorgio Parisi Wins Nonino Prize

Giorgio Parisi, a professor of theoretical physics at La Sapienza University in Rome, Italy, and winner of the ICTP Dirac Medal in 1999, has been awarded the Nonino Prize 2005, which is given to eminent authors, film makers, musicians, scientists and scholars. The prize ceremony will take place on 29 January at the estate of the Nonino family in Percoto near Udine, Italy. The Nonino family has been one of northern Italy’s most successful wine growers for more than a century and they have used their wealth and prestige to establish a series of prizes that recognize contributions to culture. Past winners of Nonino prizes include Nobel Laureates Rigoberta Menchu and V.S. Naipaul. For additional information, see
