IHA, Italian Health Award is a Veronese project with a global scope, bringing together initiatives and meetings with leading personalities and rewarding those who promote health in all its aspects. In the 2023 edition, scheduled for 9th and 10th June 2023, the focus will be on the inner and social aspects of health, ecology, and care for the planet. The 2023 award-winners, in dialogue with the public on Saturday 10th June afternoon, will be photographer Paolo Ranzani; actress, speaker, and trainer Rita Colantonio; biologist Giovanni Occhionero; agri-influencer Daniele Paci; systemic constellation expert coach Anna Pinter; manager-scientist Giancarlo Orsini and former footballer Domenico Penzo. All speakers will talk about their health concepts applied to their professional fields.

In addition to the meetings and conferences with leading figures in the health and wellness field, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in themed areas specially set up on the main floor of the Gran Guardia. Among the many proposals already confirmed, there will be an exhibition of works by various artists, including creations by disabled people who have found a deep connection with the world through painting. For the occasion, the photographer Paolo Ranzani will be taking portraits of the participants and the public, who will be able to contribute to a crowdfunding campaign in favour of clown therapy in hospitals. Instax – Fuji Film Italia supported a charity photography project for the Franca Rame and Dario Fo Foundation. Among the special guests, we must mention the presence of Thomas Torelli, a leading populariser of ethical, environmental, and social issues.
