Filomena Venuso edged out 23 other contestants to be crowned Miss Grand Italy 2020 in a competition held at the Cinecittà World in Rome on Monday, October 12.
The 21-year-old beauty from Nola succeeds last year’s titleholder, Mirea Sorrentino. She will represent Italy at the Miss Grand International 2020 pageant, whose date and venue are yet to be announced.
Shortly after her victory, the beauty queen expressed her excitement from winning her title and that she can’t wait to meet people from other cultures and religions at the international competition.
“I thank the national patron Giuseppe Puzio for the opportunity that was given to me and I am convinced it is an experience that will make me grow a lot and I am very ready to give 100% to bring the world title to Italy.”
Despite the current pandemic situation, Miss Grand Italy managed to organize its competition. The event was presented by actress and showgirl Emanuela Tittocchia together with “Made in Sud” comedian Gianni Marino.
