35th Hemingway Prize

In June 2019 takes place the 35th 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 35th edition of Hemingway Prize will take place from 20th to 22nd June 2019 the program has to be defined and will be soon available also on the official website.
