A Prize Full of Life
THE AWARD CEREMONY
For over thirty years, on the third Saturday of November, culture has been exalted at San Polo di Piave.
The Parco Gambrinus restaurant becomes a theatre which welcomes political and institutional guests, exponents of the worlds of literature, science, economy, journalism and communication, as well as an audience of scholars and enthusiasts from all over Europe.
This year the prize-giving ceremony will start at 4.30 p.m. to award the winners of the three competing sections and the promising young writers of the Premio Juniores.
There will certainly be some surprises. Many events and anecdotes have been linked to the Prize in its thirty six editions. Like the anonymous writer of a wonderful, extremely important book, who, it was discovered thirty years later, turned out to be a scientist from the former Soviet Union who managed to finally escape to Israel…
But this is part of the history of the Prize, the present will be celebrated at Parco Gambrinus on 16 November 2019.
THE PRIZE CONTINUES
Conferences, meetings, exhibitions, projections, presentations and special initiatives.
The “Premio Letterario Giuseppe Mazzotti” Association organises many events throughout the year. It is one way of contributing personally to disseminating and keeping alive the interests that stimulated Giuseppe Mazzotti, by seeking to emulate his commitment and dedication to his life’s work.
An everyday commitment in the local territory which also extends to Ecuador, with Operation Otonga, and Kenya with Operation Got Owaga, thanks to the projects promoted and financed by Bioforest.
Culture is a living thing to be read, communicated, experienced, defended and enhanced.
This is the spirit that fires the Gambrinus “Giuseppe Mazzotti” Prize.
A prize created to honour the memory of a man who dedicated his whole life to a search for the thrill of knowledge and its dissemination.
To love the land of one’s roots; its past, present and future.
To defend and enhance its heritage of history, art, culture, food and wine and people.
To care for the environment and landscape and protect them.
To desire knowledge and be prepared to explore the world from a new perspective and through the eyes of others.
It is with this spirit that the “Premio Letterario Giuseppe Mazzotti” Association undertakes to select and give visibility to the works of authors who have distinguished themselves in the areas included in the Prize sections. A further commitment is to carry forward Mazzotti’s work through awareness initiatives and active participation in safeguarding and nurturing the subjects he held dear.
