The Steering Committee appoints four juries, two in Italy and two in the United States, to the fiction and nonfiction categories. They are composed by literary critics, writers, scholars and specialists of Italian and American culture and society, professors of Italian or American language, literature and history, journalists, translators, and cultural curators.
The two Italian juries consist of Italian citizens with a good knowledge of the English language, and the American Literature. The two American juries consist of American citizens (or in possession of a Permeant Residency) with a good knowledge of the Italian language and Italian Literature.
The juries operate voluntarily.
The members of the juries who choose to leave the jury are replaced by the Steering Committee.
