The Prix mondial Cino Del Duca (Cino Del Duca World Prize) is an international literary award.

Origins and operations

It was established in 1969 in France by Simone Del Duca (1912–2004) to continue the work of her husband, publishing magnate Cino Del Duca (1899–1967).

Designed to recognize and reward an author whose work constitutes, in a scientific or literary form, a message of modern humanism, the award currently carries 300,000 prize.[1] [2]

In 1975, Madame Del Luca established the Simone and Cino Del Duca Foundation for a variety of philanthropic purposes and it assumed responsibility for the award. Following her death in 2004, the foundation was placed under the auspices of the Institut de France.
