Cultural Note: Premio Strega

Set up in 1947 and sponsored by a rich liqueur manufacturer (the producer of the liqueur “Strega”), this is the best-known Italian literary prize. Among its winners are Eduardo De Filippo, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Umberto Eco. It is awarded each year, on the first Thursday in July, after selected literature lovers cast their vote in the 16th century Ninfeo (an internal garden with a monumental fountain) in Villa Giulia, in Rome.
