Change is a step towards adding something new, it is never a loss, but it brings with it all the signs of the transformation that each individual faces. From the past to the present, from the real to the surreal, The metamorphosis - Evolution and Revolution will be the theme of the second edition of Etnabook, Catania Book and Culture Festival. The emotional effort of transformation requires energy which gives value to every action. The world of national and international literature has always given ample space to the search for the self, to the process of formation and to interior and exterior renewal. For this reason, evolution and revolution, the last stages of an individual and collective metamorphosis, will be at the center of the debate of the first great Catania Book Festival, giving voice to authors, booksellers, readers and artists who will tell the change present in their stories.
The event will take place from 25 to 27 September 2020 and will be a cultural glue for all bookstores, cultural spaces and libraries not only in the city of Catania, but also in the province. For the second consecutive year the event will consist of a three-day event full of meetings, book presentations, exhibitions, screenings, previews, a writing workshop, the contest A book in a page and, last but not least, the Etnabook literary contest - Culture under the volcano (award ceremony during the inaugural evening of the festival).
The technical jury, which will evaluate the works participating in the competition, will be composed of personalities from the world of publishing, culture and journalism. The best works of the categories in the competition will receive a plaque and a cash prize.
The competition will include three sections:
• Poetry;
• Fiction / Essay - Enrico Morello Award. The section is dedicated to the memory of the writer, the first winner of the Culture under the volcano competition, who died prematurely;
• A book on one page.

To complete the rich possibility of participation will be the competition dedicated to booktrailers, a section entirely devoted to the cinematographic transposition of literary works.

The Etnabook Festival event is organized by the NO_NAME cultural association chaired by Cirino Cristaldi.
