The Associazione Friuli Storia was created in 2013 to promote standards of excellence in the writing of history books for a general readership.

In 2014 it created the Friuli Book Prize for Contemporary History, the only national Italian literary prize for non-fiction which entrusts the selection of the winner to a committee of non-specialist readers.
