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

The recognition was given for Legarda’s efforts to bring back the Philippines to the Venice Biennale, an institution involved in promoting new artistic trends and organizing international events in the contemporary 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.
