Bordighera Poetry Prize

The Bordighera Poetry Prize was active from 1998 to 2013. 
The prize, sponsored by the Sonia Raiziss-Giop Foundation, was conceived to promote both the literature of the Italian diaspora and its languages. Many thanks to Alfredo de Palchi for his indispensable largesse and Daniela Gioseffi for her colossal efforts.
