Entries are invited for a writing competition aimed at adult immigrants living in Rome. Entitled La mia vita a Roma, it offers immigrants the opportunity to write unedited about their relationship with the city. Applications must be written in Italian on a typewriter or computer and should not be longer than five pages (30 lines of 60 characters each). Selected applications will be collected together in a book to be published by the city, while the three overall winners will be published on the citys website and receive a free course at the Universit Popolare. Winners will be notified in March.

Entries are restricted to one per person and must be accompanied by personal details including date and place of birth. These should be sent by 30 January to Concorso Letterario "Io e Roma", X Commissione Consiliare del Comune di Roma, Via della Greca 5, 00186 Roma.
