LITERARY PRIZE OF MASSAROSA


icona LITERARY PRIZE OF MASSAROSA
PREMIO LETTERARIO MASSAROSA
Date:
typology: festival
Area: Versilia
District/Locality: Massarosa (LU) - Italy

The Literary prize of Massarosa, a prestigious cultural event that has signed the history of the community of Massarosa, can be considered one of the oldest literary awards in Italy, founded in 1947, simultaneously with the Strega prize. It is the third oldest literary prize in Italy after the Bagutta (1927) and Viareggio (1930). The first edition of the event, set up by a group of "bohemian" college students to reward an unpublished story and promote literature, dates back to 1947.
 
The 2017 Final Night of the award presents a dual jury system, a technique and a popular jury, to ensure the absolute transparency of the choice. An special night where books will come alive thanks to the theater company Coquelicot that performs excerpts from the finalist works.
 
The Technical Jury, made up of cultural representatives, will be flanked by a parallel jury composed of 40 citizens representing the civil society. The technical jury selects the books the five finalists sent by publishers. The popular jury will then vote the winner's book during the final evening.
 
As a tradition of the Prize, the ultimate goal is to promote the literary production of novice authors and to promote the pleasure of reading. In the 2017 edition of the Literary Prize, there is a single section devoted to new narrative works.
