Carlo Annoni Prize
Carlo Annoni International
Playwriting Prize accepts
plays on any topic affecting the LGBTQ+ community, and the promotion of
diversity in love, society, politics and culture.
We dedicate the 2022 Carlo Annoni Prize to all those individuals that fight to see their right to love respected both in Italy and in the world, and to those experiencing discrimination because of their identity.
No majority will ever be able to abolish a minority’s feeling of diversity from their consciousness (Pier Paolo Pasolini)
