LUIGI MICHELETTI AWARD 2017 goes to the GPO WITNESS HISTORY VISITOR CENTRE, Dublin, Ireland. The General Post was seized by Irish rebels as the seat of the Provisional Irish Government. On Easter Monday 1916 the rebel leader Patrick Pearse read the Proclamation of Independence from its steps. 

The GPO was the centre of the battle between the Irish and the British in that year, and was destroyed by shelling by the British.
This led to a bitter war of independence and a partitioned Ireland. On the centenary of the uprising and as part of the commemorations a Visitor Centre was constructed which is both a cultural venue and a history museum, with personal stories, eyewitness accounts and historical artefacts. ...
