Children's Poetry Prize Italy
This is one of the key 'outreach' projects for school children run from the Keats-Shelley Memorial House, which receives visits from Italian school groups throughout the scholastic year. Established in 1991, it takes place each year in spring and summer. It invites entries through the schools from children to write poems either in English or Italian on different subjects according to their age group, from five to eighteen. Many hundreds of entries are received each year from all over Italy, on themes such as Revolution, Ghosts, Peace, Dreaming, Conflict. In June a prize-giving ceremony is given in Rome attended by the young winners and their families, usually with a well-known poet from the UK – in the past these have included Matthew Sweeney, Brian Patten, Vicki Feaver – presenting the prizes and giving a personal reading. Proceedings are rounded off at a party at McDonalds in Piazza di Spagna.
