Special mentions:

Thanking all the participants for their commitment and for the generally elevated level of the works submitted, which has often made the allocation of the granted preferences difficult, the Jury believes it necessary to signal the works submitted by:

  • the class 5° UC of Liceo Teresa Ciceri of Como, for the study and the careful processing developed on the Operette Morali by Giacomo Leopardi
  • the classes 2° and 3° ATT of Istituto Superiore Tecnico Turistico D’Oria of Ciriè (Torino) for the vast poetical and fictional sperimentation on the theme of time and its impact on the different kinds of writing
  • The Poetry workshop of Centro Socio Educativo “Francesca” of Urbino for the interesting exploration of dialectal poetry
  • the authors Storchi Melissa and Tagliabue Gabriel, for their show of an elevated and promising poetic sensibility, especially considering their extremely young age
  • the authors Cristina Balzaretti and Thi Dung Giada Barzaghi for Miaoo! La mia vita a quattro…ops…due zampe (La Vita Felice), for the softness and simplicity with which they treated a challenging and dramatically actual theme.
