is supported by the Cultural Committee – constituted by the union of the most accredited artistic and cultural associations of East Sicily with some authoritative international club services. The Award of CONTEMPORARY POETRY (in Italian, English, French and Mediterranean Languages) will culminate in the final event of next
28 September 2019 during which the finalist Artists will express their messages in order to sensitize public opinion towards the Culture of Beauty and the most urgent social issues.
To this end, I am particularly pleased to invite You in Siracusa (Italy, Sicily) together with a delegation of Artists who can offer their personal artistic contribution about the following themes:

1) Peace: reality or utopia?;
2) One world, one people: the human brotherhood;
3) Love, what it is?

With the aim of increasing cultural exchanges in the name of peace, brotherhood and solidarity, I ask You the courtesy of favoring the same invitation to your friends and all those associations usually promoting and sharing high quality artistic and cultural events.

Peace and Love, Ella Ciulla
