Premio Italia 2014 : And the Winners Are…

The 2014 „Premio Italia” (Italy SF Award)  is a recognition of the Italian science fiction and fantasy. Established in 1972, Premio Italia is the celebration of the Italian SFF fandom’s  appreciation  for domestic production of the previous year.

The categories have changed over the years, including the best novels, the best short stories, best magazines and fanzines, the best editors, the best illustrators, etc… including the method of voting, which in some periods was open to all fans, at other times was the responsibility of large juries, with different systems of calculation of votes.
