The biennial ‘Pietro Grilli di Cortona’ Prize is awarded to the best book published by at least one SISP member. In order for the book to be eligible for the prize, all authors must have obtained their Ph.D. no more than 12 years before the date of publication of the volume. Works published in the year in which the prize is announced and in the previous year can compete. Books whose authors were not SISP members at the time of publication are excluded from participation. In the event that at least one of the authors has applied for SISP membership in the months preceding the publication of the work, and the application has not yet been ratified by the Assembly, the participation request is considered admissible.
Nomination procedure: You can compete for the award through self-nomination by sending three hard copies of the book, or an official digital copy (not drafts or proofs), to the SISP Secretariat. The book must have been published during the year of the Prize or in the immediately preceding year. Moreover, all authors must provide a declaration certifying that they had obtained their Ph.D. no more than 12 years before the date of publication of the book.
Amount of the prize (total for each single book): €2,000.00
