There is a rose that blooms every year on June 21st in Milan, the day of the summer solstice, with a special prize. It is called Rosa di Brera and it is assigned to those who stood out in particular for the support of the Pinacoteca di Brera's projects.

Now in its second edition, the award goes to Rena De Sisto, Bank of America Merrill Lynch's global executive for Arts & Culture and Women's programs. "People make the difference, and when the right person is in the right position, the world can change for the better," says James Bradburne, the brilliant director of the Pinacoteca di Brera in the award's motivation. "In the last decade Rena De Sisto was responsible for the creation of the visionary art conservation project of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which involved, among other things, the restoration of Napoleon's sculpture in the courtyard of Brera, the restyling of Pinacoteca's laboratory and the restoration of the monumental canvas by Tiepolo".

The prize gave to Rena De Sisto consists of an enchanting gold and pink enamel pin decorated with a 1.13 cm rubellite surrounded by a corolla of diamonds created by Giampiero Bodino. The master and artist of fine jewelry has created this wonder inspired by the Rosa di Brera, a variety created especially for Brera da Barni, a Tuscan nursery specializing in roses. Since last year the Rose of Brera is also cultivated in the Botanical Garden of Brera.
