On September 30, 2015 returns the international Giacomo Leopardi awards in Trentola Ducenta . This year the artistic contest has been split between three different dates, dividing the awards into several categories. Last June 29 were handed the Career, Jury, and the youth (under 28) awards. Whereas adults in all categories will be awarded on Wednesday, September 30. The winners, coming from every corner of Italy, will meet again on December 5, on the occasion of a great conference and an exhibition in honor of the famous poet from Recanati.
Leopardi awards, that has reached its tenth edition, promotes the development of every kind of art – from writing in vernacular languages to painting, music, sculpture, ceramics, theatre and photography – in an environment free of associative coexistence and oppressive officiousness. The project is run by the editorial staff of “Il mio giornalino” from Aversa, an official organ of the cultural association “Scuola centro Kant” and has been produced in collaboration with the schools of the Campania region and the sponsor of the Agro Aversano and Caserta.
On the occasion of the award ceremony on June 29, Maria Conte, a journalist and the organizer of the event expressed herself the following way: “It is an occasion to bring back to life Leopardi, who among all the poets studied at school was certainly the one who fascinated me the most. The competition offers also an occasion to demonstrate that the South has great talents, summing up the spirit of the contest which promotes and cultivates the “future” of the Italian culture.
