Dear Sirs,

This is to inform that Mr Stephen J. Pellegrino is offering a scholarship for Australian and Italian citizens permanently residing in Queensland in conjunction with the Consulate of Italy in Brisbane.

This year the scholarship will be directed to young Italian/Australian artists and it is inserted in the framework of the Italian Week 2008, the official celebration for the Italian National Day (Festa della Repubblica). During the Republic Day, the Italian people remember the referendum of 1946, example of democratic expression with which Italians chose their form of State and started walking the path which brought Italy to grow economically and politically, to be one of the founding members and supporter of the European integration, and to finally become the modern worldwide respected and admired country which is known to be today.

The Italian Week 2008 is an opening of Italy. An Italy that is interested of not only promoting its culture but to also give an opportunity to the youth of today to be a part of a project that will be beneficial to their cultural and professional lives as a whole.

The “Pellegrino Scholarship” is an important part of the Italian Week, that is a week long experience of food and Italian culture, from the 26th of May to the 1st of June, and a professional and cultural opportunity for young Italian/Australian musicians.

The three finalists of the “Pellegrino Scholarship” will perform live in a Music Festival, on the 1st of June 2008, at Suncorp Piazza on Brisbane’s Southbank. At this event the young musicians will have the possibility to show their musical and artistic abilities to the city of Brisbane. Read the terms and conditions here

After the exhibition of the three finalists, a jury composed also by internationally known artists, will announce the winner of the 2008 edition that will receive the “Pellegrino Scholarship”. The scholarship will allow him/her to further his/hers skills and knowledge in Italy for one month at a prestigious University/Cultural Institution.

The candidates must be aged between 18 and 25 years old and they must perform a piece of music (even if it is not original). The performing pieces, recorded on either CD or DVD, must be sent into the Office of the Italian Consulate, Level 14, AMP Place, 10 Eagle St., Brisbane Qld 4001, by 17 hours, 4th April 2008, together with a curriculum vitae and general details about themselves.

Further information can be acquired from the “Pellegrino Scholarship” information notice attached and from the web site:

Hoping in a wide involvement, I send you my best regards.

Francesco Capecchi
Consul of Italy for QLD & NT
