 The finale of the national event “Miss Sorda e Mister Sordo 2012” (Miss Deaf and Mister Deaf 2012) took place at the City Theatre of Caserta on Saturday, December 1, at 8.30 p.m, when the most beautiful Italian deaf young men and women between 18 and 30 years of age walked down the catwalk. 

 The topic of the event, which took place for the first time in Italy in 2011, was “Star vibrations”, because, despite of their hearing disability, the deaf can perceive vibrations caused by the wind, by sounds and by other acoustic events pervading our daily life. The participating stars of tomorrow bravely faced the stage to convey their joy to everyone. The finalists  of the event will by right enter the finale of Miss Deaf World and Mister Deaf Europe, which will take place in Prague in 2013.

  The soiree was hosted by Paola Saluzzi. Marina Ripa di Meana sponsored the event. The jury was chaired by Cesare Lanza. Among the members of the jury we found the Olympic diving finalist Piero Italiani, the first founder and council member of the Association for the Disabled Gragnano, Vincenzo Mosca, the ex-President of the province Salerno and ex-council member of the National Executive of the ENS (National Deaf Association), Angelo Santoro, Totò’s daughter Liliana de Curtis, Miss Deaf Italy 2011 Alessia Petrongari, who crowned the two winners, and Miss Deaf Elegance 2011 Chiara Bifulco, who acted as assistant during the event.

 For the first time, the event was subtitled in real time by the International Association on Respeaking onA.I.R. and interpreted in sign language; it will be broadcast until the 6th of January on Gold TV Italia, digital terrestrial channel 128, and on Sky, channels 892 and 925, on 60 regional TVs, on the national TV Koper-Capodistria and on the radios of the project Le 100 Radio più belle d’Italia.
