In 2016 Frederic Olivieri' director of “Teatro Alla Scala” in Milan, asked Michele Sessa to create three awards for three etoiles who had danced at the “Teatro Alla Scala Milan" and they were Carla Fracci, Luciana Savignano and Svetlana Zakharova.
The awards are made of ebony and silver, depicting the Teatro alla Scala di Milano and the silhouettes of Carla Fracci, Luciana Savignano and Svetlana Zakharova. The awards want to represent the Teatro alla Scala that supports the Etoiles to then take flight.
