The Prix mondial Cino Del Duca (Cino Del Duca World Prize) is an international literary award. With an award amount of EUR200,000, it is among the richest literary prizes.[1]

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).

The award recognizes an author whose work constitutes, in a scientific or literary form, a message of modern humanism. The award's prize has been valued as high as 300,000 EUR over the years; in 2016 it was 200,000.[2][3]

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.
