SPOTLIGHT: Miss Universe Italy 2020 Viviana Vizzini

Italy's Viviana Vizzini is considered as one of the early front-runners in the upcoming 69th Miss Universe pageant this May in Florida, USA.

The 27-year-old communications sciences and marketing student who hails from Sicily was crowned Miss Universe Italy 2020 last December and earned her right to represent her country at Miss Universe.

In her official bio at Miss Universe, Viviana is described as someone who uses her knowledge to leverage herself as Miss Universe Italy and is committed to seeking ways to improve the lives of women around the world. She works as an ambassador for the Italian Red Cross and provided support to Casa Penelope, a place of refuge for women who need safe housing.

Viviana is proud of her Sicilian heritage and believes life is about the journey and that with each day, she can find something new to learn or appreciate about humanity. If she wins Miss Universe, she will be the first-ever Italian representative to take home the title.

Italy has never won Miss Universe since it debuted at the pageant in 1952 with Giovanna Mazzotti. The country came very close to winning in 1960 and 1987 when Daniela Bianchi and Roberta Capua managed to finish first runner-up. Its last placement was in the Top 15 with Valentina Bonariva in 2014.
