It is an absolute record for Italy as well. For the first time, the Dirac Medal, one of the most important international scientific awards, is awarded to an Italian researcher, Alessandra Bonanno, who works in Germany, at the institute Max Planck For the gravitational physics of Potsdam. The Dirac Bonanno Medal, awarded to the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), is awarded for his theoretical research based on the discovery Gravitational waves. In addition to being the first Italian, Bonanno is the second woman to receive the Dirac Medal. Physicists Thibaut Damour, Frans Pretorius and Saul Tyukolsky were honored.
