The Giorgia Mileto Award

Press Office since 2002, Giorgia Mileto has been involved with dedication and passion in the organization of teaching, musical events and all Saint Louis activities, deeply involved in the growth not only of the AFAM Institute, but also of the many students who have attended it over the years, accompanying them from their first steps on stage and supporting them in their professional growth.
