In the USA, new literary works by Italian writers, both of fiction and nonfiction, are judged by an American jury, consisting of university professors of Italian and other cultural experts; in Italy new books by American writers, both of fiction and nonfiction, are judged by an Italian jury consisting of university professors of American literature and other cultural experts.
