Date:9/8/2009

The Balzan Prizes 2009 have been announced in Milan by the Chairman of the Balzan General Prize Committee, Salvatore Veca, together with the President of the Balzan "Prize" Foundation, Ambassador Bruno Bottai, in the Corriere della Sera Foundation, Sala Buzzati.

The profiles of the winners and the motivations of the Prizes which will be awarded next November 20 in the Federal Palace in Berne were presented by four prestigious members of the General Prize Committee:

Karlheinz Stierle (Professor Emeritus of Romance literature at the University of Con-stance; Member of the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften) read the motivation for the assignment of the Prize for Literature since 1500 to Terence Cave: "for his fundamental contributions to renaissance literature and how it was written and for his demonstration of the much neglected concept of anagnoresis (recognition) in Aristotelian poetics as appropriate for illuminating essential moments in the history and theory of modern drama, and, much later, of the novel.

Nicolette Mout (Vice-chairwoman of the GPC, Professor of Modern History and Profes-sor of Central European Studies at the University of Leiden; Member of the Royal Neth-erlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) read the motivation for the assignment of the Prize for the History of Science to Paolo Rossi "for his decisive contributions to the study of the intellectual foundation of the history of science from the Renaissance to Illuminism.

Lord Krebs of Wytham (Principal of Jesus College, Oxford; Fellow of the Royal Soci-ety, London) read the motivation for the assignment of the Prize for the Cognitive Neuroscience to Brenda Milner: "for her truly pioneering work that has shaped the field of cognitive neuroscience for over half a century.

Nicola Cabibbo (Professor of Physics at the University La Sapienza, Rome; Fellow of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Rome; President of the Pontifical Academy of Sci-e
