Tenco Prize, from October 18th to 20th, 2018 at Ariston Theater in Sanremo, is one of the most important events in Italy to support and promote Italian and international songwriters.
Since 1974, distinguished singer-songwriters are rewarded with the Tenco prize as a recognition to their significant role in the music scene.
As every year, the awards ceremony of this 42nd edition of Premio Tenco will take place in Sanremo during Rassegna della Canzone d’Autore.
The event is organized by Club Tenco, founded in Sanremo in 1972 in honor of Italian musician Luigi Tenco, who committed suicide during Sanremo Music Festival in 1967.
