The Award is endorsed by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC, and the American Academy in Rome.

The Award is meant to be a “bridge” that connects two cultures, the Italian and the American, in order to promote awareness and exchange of the most recent cultural trends in the two countries.

“The Bridge” is conferred annually to one work of Fiction and one work of Nonfiction, which have been recently published in Italy and the United States, It consists of a prize that bestows a sum to the winners, and that covers both the cost of translation and travel expences. Furthermore, the authors will be assisted in finding a publisher for the book in the country of non-origin.
