Literary prizes, a cultural and market challenge

The prizes awarded to writers are numerous and diverse in terms of their history and approaches. They can be awarded by specialized juries or by the public at large, and have been established by intellectuals, foundations, or booksellers. Below are some of the main prizes in the fiction sector


Strega Prize | Campiello Prize | Bancarella Prize | Flaiano Prize for Literature | Mondello Prize | Viareggio Prize

Literary prizes in Italy are a twelve-month-a-year affair. Dedicated to professionals in the book retail business, keen readers, and the public at large, and using tried-and-true formulas or innovative approaches, the literary prizes that bestow recognition upon nationally and internationally-renowned authors or up-and-coming young writers are quite diverse in terms of how they are presented and formulated. Nevertheless, the long-established Strega, Campiello, Bancarella, Flaiano, Mondello, and Viareggio Prizes still easily remain the most prestigious.
