Awards and recognition
Dame. Xiaotian Fu at the Knighting Ceremony Dame. Xiaotian was knighted with the Order of Stella d’Italia (Star of Italy) by His Excellency President Mattarella of Italy in 2017. Italy’s Ambassador to China at the time, Ettore Sequi, delivered a speech at the ceremony, saying: “Fu Xiaotian is a star. She’s not only a star for Chinese television, but she’s a star for those who have the chance to meet her. It’s sort of a polar star of Italy in China, and I would say beyond. As far as I remember, she has interviewed one Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, two Italian Prime Ministers, and the President of the Italian Republic. I think that no one in the world has such a record. She always did it with grace, with extreme professionalism, and with a committed heart, so that our President, our Prime Ministers, and our Minister of Foreign Affairs have kept the interview as one of their most meaningful experiences in China.”
In 2020, Dame. Xiaotian was an award presenter for the International Emmy Award for Best Documentary.
Xiaotian participates in a variety of philanthropic endeavors. She continues to sponsor her alma mater, Churchill College, Cambridge, which in 2016 decided to name a garden after her – The Xiaotian Fu Garden – to recognize her commitment towards both education and excellence. The then Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, sent a message of congratulation on the occasion of the naming ceremony. She said: “Naming the garden in her name is a recognition of what Ms. Xiaotian Fu is doing, through her program Talk with World Leaders, to encourage international cooperation; to encourage young people to be more engaged to participate in the life of their communities; to achieve excellence in higher education. I think this is what we need nowadays, in a world that is globalized, that is full of challenges, but of course with a lot of opportunities, and we have to use these opportunities for young people to make them part of the answer to the pressing needs that we have nowadays.”
