The Alassio Centolibri Award - An Author for Europe

25th Edition

The Alassio Centolibri Award - An Author for Europe


The literary prize "An Author for Europe" is the culmination of twenty intense years of cultural promotion initiatives supported by the City of Alassio. From 1974 to 1994 the major Italian writers came to present their works. It is from here that, thanks to the contribution of a group of intellectuals and cultural operators who gravitated around the Civic Library, the idea of a literary prize of European scope was born.

That way, in 1995, the national literary prize "An Author for Europe" was born and its jury is made up of foreign Italianists who work in the main European universities.
