MAB, Maria Antonietta Berlusconi


Maria Antonietta Berlusconi Beretta ha abitato il mondo della Danza con quella dedizione e quella discrezione che si sono tradotte naturalmente in un segnale di eleganza ed impegno.

Lontana dal clamore della cronaca e vicina al cuore pulsante della formazione artistica, i giovani ed il loro mondo, nei confronti di questo mondo la signora Etta si è “messa in ascolto”, per coglierne aspettative, pensieri, difficoltà, sogni.
La Danza era il SUO sogno da sempre, strumento sublime di formazione prima ancora dell’essere umano e poi del ballerino.

Premio MAB, a lei dedicato e voluto dall’omonima Associazione, intende, dunque, proporre una testimonianza della sua opera nella promozione di arte, cultura e crescita umana tramite l’arte, proseguendo il percorso iniziato con la fondazione e direzione della scuola Principessa Danza di Milano e, più in generale, con una sistematica attenzione ai giovani, alle loro potenzialità ed alla loro formazione.

Cifre portanti del progetto sono da sempre: qualità, professionalità e buon gusto. Si tratta si un preciso percorso di eccellenza orientato ai giovani e mirato a portare avanti le idee di chi ha saputo amarli, esortarli e semplicemente stare a guardare, …” andando via così, in punta di piedi”.

Far from any clamour in the news and close to the beating heart of artistic education, young people and their world, in relation to this world, Mrs. Etta has “listened to”, to grasp its expectations, thoughts, difficulties, dreams. Ballet was HER dream ever since, sublime instrument of training even firstly of the human being and then of the dancer.

The MAB Award is dedicated to her and it was created by the association after her name, therefore it intends to offer a testimony of her work in the promotion of art, culture and human growth through art, continuing on the path laid with the foundation and direction of the school Principessa Danza in Milan and, more generally, with a systematic attention to young people, their potential and their training.

Key figures of the project have always been: quality, professionalism and good taste. It is a precise path of excellence aimed at young people and aimed at carrying forward the ideas of those who knew how to love them, exhort them and simply stand by, “leaving like this, on tiptoe”.
