It is a notebook designed with a specific purpose, and has three components: a classic notebook, perfect for holding stories; another notebook with a collection of narratives about the prize; and, finally, a leaflet with the program of the event and a list of the people taking part.
The sixth presentation of the Chatwin Prize, which is awarded in Italy and known in Italian as "Camminando per il mondo" ("Walking across the globe") took place in Genoa from November 13th to 17th. It was devoted to travel réportage and gave several special prizes to well known people associated with the theme of travel. These included Luca Zingaretti (for "An Artist in the World"), Fulco Pratesi (for "A World to be Saved"), Jason Elliot (for "Authors Beyond the Frontier"), and Stefano Malatesta (for "A Life of Travel and Literary Passion").
The "Viaggi di carta" prize was given to Paolo Rumiz for his "The Legend of the Seafaring Mountains."
The réportage dealing with the voluntary organization "Love Without Borders" has shown itself to be an important medium for solidarity, consenting [?] to interventions on behalf of children in Corumbà, Brazil; on behalf of deaf-mute children in Ouarzazate, Morocco; and leading to the construction of a school for "The Children of Nosy Bé" in Madagascar. This year the prize was given, for the first time jointly, to "Help Afghanistan" by Giuseppe Bosio and "I Have Also Eaten Soap Bubbles" by Pamela Garberini.
