Gaetano Cozzi award for essays on the history of games, 2016

As part of its long-standing support for research into games, festive events, sports and leisure activities in general up to the outbreak of World War II , the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche sponsors two annual awards of euros 3,000 each for young scholars doing original work in this field. Although a recent initiative, the awards continue in the tradition of the Foundation, which over thirty years has assigned 70 scholarships to graduates over a broad range of academic levels.
