The “Penisola Sorrentina Arturo Esposito” Award is an important national cultural project sponsored by the Senate of the Republic, the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the Ministry of Heritage, Culture and Tourism. Over the years, national and international distinguished individuals have been awarded for contributing to the visibility of the Sorrento Coast throughout the world.

Founded by the Poet “Arturo Esposito” as a “Poetry Award”, the event has gained such prestige over the years that it has become a rich multimedia and transversal cultural venue.

You’ve got to wait until October 26th to enjoy this evening dedicated to culture and entertainment. The event takes place at Piano di Sorrento at the “Teatro Delle Rose”, its historic venue.

The ambassador for the 2019 edition will be the Italian actor and comedian Paolo Ruffini, awarded at Piano di Sorrento during last year’s event for community theatre thanks to the show “Up&Down”.

The event features, as it does every year, the special section “Genius Loci”, an award awarded to all those who with their work have contributed to enhancing and promoting the image of the city and in general the peninsula of Sorrento throughout the world.
