Honorary citizenship of the city of Palermo
Professor Reinhold Würth was awarded honorary citizenship of the city of Palermo. At a ceremony on 12 September 2018, Mayor Leoluca Orlando awarded the city’s highest tribute at Teatro Santa Cecilia not far from Cappella Palatina, the reason for the honorary citizenship: a 12th century building in which Arab, Byzantine and Norman influences blend into a unique work of art. Reinhold Würth had worked tirelessly for its restoration and repair. He had already been awarded an honorary doctorate by Università degli Studi di Palermo in 2007.
