Senator Loren Legarda has been bestowed the Italian honor of “Cavaliere” of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, the equal of a British knighthood.

The recognition was given for Legarda’s efforts to deliver again the Philippines to the Venice Biennale, an establishment concerned in selling new creative tendencies and organizing worldwide occasions within the up to date arts.

“I am truly grateful and humbled, but more importantly, tremendously inspired to pursue stronger cultural partnership between our two nations and tap other areas of cooperation,” Legarda wrote on Instagram.
