Sanremo The Awards, instituted in the Ligurian town from 1935 to 1940, well represent the cultural climate.
The initiative took part in the likes of Achille Starace and Giuseppe Bottai, but also Bontempelli, Antonio Maraini, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and many others.
Prizes Sanremo imposed themselves as an opportunity of convergence of social life, culture and especially art. In just five years they participated in the different sections of the competition a little less than three thousand works, from Italy and almost all European countries, even from Japan.
The reconstruction of the events related to the premium offers an unprecedented insight into the Italian culture of the thirties, deepening the “premium” system, which played a major role at international level, as a meeting point between the different trends of the time.

Daniela Lauria, contemporary art historian, is currently a PhD student at the Université Nice Sophia Antipolis. Lecturer in Italian public schools, has to his credit numerous scientific contributions and receiverships of art exhibitions.
