Andersen Prize and Festival

From 03/06/2022 to 19/06/2022 - Sestri Levante

From June 3 to 19, a special, revamped edition of Andersen Prize and Festival, the double event dedicated to literature and illustration for children and to street theater shows, will be staged in Sestri Levante.

Instead of the usual four days, this year the Andersen will take place in a more extended time, with initiatives that will animate the City of the Two Bays for more than two weeks.
During the Festival, as per tradition, will take place the ceremony of the 55th Award "H. C. Andersen - Bay of Fables" that this year saw the participation of more than 800 works in the various categories.
It is also celebrated the 25th Andersen Festival whose program will be online by May. To stay updated:

The Andersen Prize and Festival are organized by Mediaterraneo, under the High Patronage of the European Parliament and the patronage of the Liguria Region, the Municipality of Sestri Levante, the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, the Metropolitan City of Genoa, Rai Liguria and Medecins Sans Frontieres.
