The profiles of the winners and the motivations of the Prizes (which will be awarded by the President of the Italian Republic, during a ceremony to be held in Rome on November 19) were presented by four prestigious members of the General Prize Committee:

Quentin Skinner (Barber Beaumont Professor of the Humanities, Queen Mary, University of London; Fellow of the British Academy and of Christ's College Cambridge) read the motivation for the assignment of the Prize for European History, 1400-1700 (including the British Isles) to Carlo Ginzburg:

"For the exceptional combination of imagination, scholarly precision and literary skill with which he has recovered and illuminated the beliefs of ordinary people in Early-modern Europe".
