Panorama International Golden Literary award 2020 will be dedicated to noted Greek writer and poet Christos Sanos. The award is given considering his contributions to literature as a bilingual poet during Panorama International Literature Festival.
Christos Sanos was born in Nikaia, Attica and received his curricular education in schools of Agios Ioannis Rentis and Moschato. He studied Political Science in Italy, at the Universita’ Degli Studi di Napoli “ L’Orientale”, and received his degree with honours.
Christos Sanos’ major works include The poetry of everyday life (Street Publications, 2020), Destiny (Angelakis Publications, 2019) and The sister soul (Angelaki Publications, 2018). He is a member of the DEEL (International Society of Greek Writers), of the PEL (Panhellenic Union of Writers) and of the “Dante Alighieri” International Cultural Association of Athens.
He is married to the Italian painter Carla Perleonardi, with whom he had two children, and lives in Paleo Faliro. He participated and was awarded in Greek poetry competitions and his works have been included and published in literary journals and poetic anthologies in Greece and abroad.
“His works reflect rich culture and heritage of Greek whereas his role in literature as a multilingual poet has helped to abridge cultures of Italy and Greek,” said the jury while declaring the awards. He has been awarded for his achievement during his lifetime. Due to the pandemic, the award ceremony will be conducted virtually.
The 10-days long Panorama International Literature Festival was conducted jointly by Indus Scrolls Press, New Delhi and Writers Capital Foundation, Italy. Hundreds of writers from across the world participated in the programme. The presentations are featured in various social media sites too.
