19th edition of the Week of the Italian Language in the World

Illustrating the Week of the Italian Language in the World

The Week of the Italian Language in the World is an event promoted yearly by the cultural and diplomatic network in the third week of  October. It focuses on a theme that acts as the leitmotif of a vast cultural  program to promote the diffusion of the Italian language. The initiative was  launched in 2001 through the joint action of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and  International Cooperation and the Accademia della Crusca, which was subsequently joined by the Swiss Confederation, where Italian is one  of the country’s official languages. During these past eighteen years, the Week of  the Italian Language in the World has ended up representing the Foreign  Ministry’s privileged Italian promotion channel in terms of the number of  activities simultaneously organised all over the world. This success story is due to the growing engagement of the Italian and  Italian-speaking communities abroad, along with local cultural institutions and a host of  writers, poets, artists, teachers and academics who have passionately enlivened all  the past editions by taking part in hundreds of conferences, meetings, lectures,  refresher courses, thus opening a cultural and intercultural dialogue with other  writers, artists, intellectuals and representatives of civil society in a large  number of Countries. 

Since 2013, the theme of the Week has dealt with  the world of business and culture, highlighting the link between language and creativity.
