In June 2023 takes place the 39th edition of Ernest Hemingway Prize in Lignano Sabbiadoro.

The Hemingway Prize is an important literary event created in honor of the writer who found in Lignano and its lagoon the pleasant retreat in different periods of his life. 

The author of the book "The old man and the sea" deeply loved Venice and through the lagoon he discovered the little peninsula of Friuli Venezia Giulia situated between Venice and Trieste. He loved to call it "Italian Florida".
To thank him Lignano dedicated to the writer the public park and created the prize that praises many important names. 

The 2023 edition of the Hemingway Prize is already scheduled on Thursday 22nd, Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th June, as always in Lignano Sabbiadoro.
