The Pavese Prize
The Pavese Prize, in its renewed guise, pays homage to the figure of Cesare Pavese with five sections that reflect its multifaceted activity: Fiction (2020), Non-Fiction, Publishing, Translation, and Poetry (2021). Every year the Prize is collectively assigned by the jury to key figures of the Italian literary and publishing scene who stand out for their dedication, accuracy and innovative approach. The jury is composed of Giulia Boringhieri, Chiara Fenoglio, Gian Arturo Ferrari, Claudio Marazzini, Carlo Ossola, Alberto Sinigaglia and Pierluigi Vaccaneo.
The Prize also aims to further promote the excellence of our land, from Moscato d’Asti to Alba white truffle, which every year are offered to the winners. Since 2020, the Pavese Prize has been including a special prize for students, who are encouraged to approach the work of Cesare Pavese through their personal interpretation writing a short story or essay on a specific theme.
