The idea of the project sprang out from the mind of a woman, Francesca d’Oriano, the president of the no profit Association “Arte/Oltre”: a woman involving other women, such as journalists, writers, university teachers, managers. The idea was born in a winter day of the year 2011, one of those January Sundays in which at Sabaudia the rough and noisy sea is particularly proud of imposing its presence.

This was the origin of the Award aiming at paying homage to women, to their increasing and successful engagement in various fields, such as culture, art, scientific research ,entrepreneurship, research, sport ( Paralympic sport too), with a particular attention towards the social aspects of their jobs. Moreover this cultural Event provides awards to writers, in the sections of fiction, essays, and first work.

From that day in January, inspired by the strength itself of the sea lapping the Pontine coasts, three editions of the Pavoncella Award were carried on, enriched by the presence of famous, international personages that got awards and scholarships in different fields.

Why was a “lapwing” chosen as a symbol? Because it is the symbol of Circeo National Park and it represents also the female creativity paying a great attention to the defense, development and promotion of our habitat.

In fact specific awards are granted to female activities particularly linked with the territory (but also out of it).. In a society where women are getting more and more relevant roles and where a lot of people go on with the same mistakes, still discussing about either exploitation or valorization of women’s presence, an Award dedicated to female creativity means an opportunity to see the world with women’s eyes: women valued for their capabilities in different fields by a jury including only women.

This year The Pavoncella Award has got the Patronage of the Prime Minister, the Sport Credit Institute, Lazio Region, Latina Province, Sabaudia Municipality, Pro-Loco, Circeo National Park. It is an award created by the heart, rewarding women that think with their hearts and persons able in recognizing the uniqueness of the heart of a woman.
