Premio Carla Poesio

A part of its ongoing commitment to promoting publishing excellence, the Bologna Children’s Book Fair is now focusing on the world of research by establishing a permanent award dedicated to the best dissertations in children’s literature.

The prize, currently awarded for postgraduate works in Italian University only, pays tribute to the literary critic Carla Poesio, her fundamental contribution to the world of children’s literature and her unique role in the birth and development of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

The winner of the third edition (2021) is Alice Galletti with the thesis Tracce di materia e luce nella letteratura per l’infanzia: la preziosità dell’oro tra il qui e l’altrove (University of Bologna).

Alice’s thesis will be published by ETS publishing house, with the support of BolognaFiere.
