Literary Award The Bridge will take place at the
Protected content - entrance from 4:30 pm.

The Bridge Annual Writing Contest:
The Book Award “The Bridge,” is created and promoted by Casa delle Letterature of the Rome Municipality, the American Initiative for Italian Culture (AIFIC), and the Embassy of the United States in Rome. This year Protected content Award is sustained also by CEPELL (Centro per il Libro e La Lettura) and FUIS (Federazione Unitaria Italiana Scrittori). The prize is endorsed by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC, the American Academy in Rome, the Italian Cultural Insitute in Washington and NY and other Institutions in both.

“The Bridge” has a mirror structure with two sections, one Italian and one American, similar and opposite to each other. The Italian books in competition (5 books of fiction and 5 books of nonfiction published in Italy) are judged by an American jury, while the American books in competition (5 books of fiction and 5 books of nonfiction published in the USA) are judged by an Italian jury. This structure ensures a better understanding of each other’s cultures, which is one of the objectives of this literary project.
