The jury wanted to give a special mention to the documentary: “La Loro Africa” by Marco Clementi and Enzo Nucci for RAI-TG1 for having given back to the Continent a more realistic image, recounting contexts of extreme difficulty, in Kenya, but also the great opportunities and growing successes in the areas of entrepreneurship, education, health.
