Campiello Tour - 06.27.2019
June 27th 2019 the Campiello Tour makes a stop in Sicily.
Appointment h. 7.00 pm at Villa Fortuna - Aci Trezza (CT).
The "Campiello" is a literary prize that is assigned to works of Italian fiction. Established by the will of the Veneto industrialists with the aim of carving out a specific space for Veneto entrepreneurs in the Italian cultural world.
Today the Prize, considered one of the most prestigious in Italy and among the most important in the Italian publishing scene, is a channel with which the Veneto Industrialists offer their contribution to the promotion of Italian fiction and to encourage and spread the pleasure for reading in the knowledge that a prize finds its maximum reason for being in "creating new readers".
The mechanism for reaching the winner includes: a double jury, a technique and a popular one. The first to nominate the five finalists chosen from among those who, according to the terms of the competition announcement, are eligible for the prize, the second, a jury that changes every year and consists of 300 readers, called to choose the winner, and whose names they remain secret until the evening of the ceremony, to guarantee total independence of judgment.
The idea of a summer tour, which involves several Italian cities, was born in 2006 to present the five finalist authors and their works before the Winner Award Ceremony. It is a cycle of meetings open to the public in which all readers are involved.
Ornella Laneri has been supporting the tour of Catania since 2014, first as CEO of the Four Points by Sheraton Catania hotel, and - since the last edition - with the OELLE Mediterraneo Antico Foundation, which she chaired.
"Sicily is a land with an extraordinary literary tradition - said Piero Luxardo, president of the Award Management Committee -. We have been in Catania for several years thanks to Ornella Laneri, with important appointments to learn about different works for styles, themes and suggestions ”.
