The ceremony of the Oscars of the underground took place last night in the charming and fascinating Hagerbach test gallery in Switzerland. The first night of the ITA awards ended with a huge audience and was followed on the internet through social networks.
Perhaps the most coveted prize for the major project of the year goes to the Eurasia Tunnel in Turkey.

However, the first night of the awards speaks mainly Italian with two awards that go to the station “Toledo” in Naples and to the enterprise “Salini-Impregilo” and the addition of a well-deserved lifetime achievement award for Prof. Eng. Pelizza of the Turin Polytechnic.
