JCU Alumnus Leonardo Quattrucci Awarded Premio Italia Giovane

On October 21, JCU alumnus Leonardo Quattrucci won the Premio Italia Giovane (“Young Italy”) prize. Presented by Rome’s Centro Studi Americani, the award, which is in its third edition, is given to ten Italians under 35 who have demonstrated qualities of initiative, positivity, courage, and professionalism.

Leonardo, who is from Rome, graduated with a major in International Affairs in 2013. After John Cabot, he earned a M.A. in Public Policy at Oxford University. Today Quattrucci is the youngest policy adviser at the European Political Strategy Centre, the think-tank of the European Commission, where he coordinates six teams and specializes in the future of work and institutional innovation.  In 2016 he was featured in the inaugural edition of Forbes magazine’s “30 Under 30 Europe” list.

Congratulations to Leonardo from the entire JCU community!
