Awards and Competitions

In 2019 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation established the contest ‘Vivo d’arte’ for young Italian artists under 36 living abroad.

The aim of the award is to provide an instrument of visibility and promote collaboration between Italian artists and the cultural scene of the country where they live, encouraging them to produce new works that develop the theme of fusion and dialogue between cultures and that involve local artists. The focus of the award is on the performing arts (music, theatre, contemporary dance) and is supported by the prestigious collaboration of the Romaeuropa Foundation.


The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in conjunction with other institutions, organizes a number of awards and competitions in various artistic and cultural fields.

The Ministry also offers Prizes and Grants for the translation of literary and audio-visual Italian language works.

Italy offers many awards to Italian and/or foreign citizens at an international, national, regional, provincial and municipal level.
