Pasquale Amato: «In the year of the CoronaVirus that is upsetting the lives of the peoples of the planet, the Nosside Award - after its opening in February at the Havana International Book Fair - has adapted without yielding to the emergency of the pandemic and has surpassed any expectations. It has renewed the communication channels through the internet. It has increased membership, expanding its boundless openness to the various languages and cultures of the world and reaching 100 participating countries. It confirmed its cultural strategy with the awards of the International Jury chaired by prof. Giuseppe Amoroso. We are now working to invent an Award Event which, taking into account the planetary dimension of the Project and the persistence of the pandemic, will involve the creative use of Internet technology».
