    The number of American students who take Italian classes in the schools of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut has doubled in the last five years

    Italian clothing maker Diesel is known for its denim and chic fashion designs; however, for some students in New York City—supported by the Italian American Committee on Education (IACE)—the Diesel name will take on a whole other meaning.

    American students of Italian American Committee on Education (IACE) visit the Ferrari showroom in Manhattan to learn Italian while designing the car of their dreams
  • IACE annual assembly and award ceremony for the teachers who have brought the largest number of students to sustain the Italian AP exam. The goal was reached one year ahead of schedule: the number of American high school students enrolled in the Italian AP (Advanced Placement) exam this coming Spring has already surpassed 2,500, the minimum that had to be reached by 2016 to keep the test alive. And 60% out of the 2.993 students who signed up to take the exam come from the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, where IACE operates.
  • Italian language and Italian culture make an inseparable pair. Ilaria Costa, executive director of the Italian American Committee on Education (IACE), speaks about this and recounts how difficult it is, in the Tristate area, to promote everything Italian through the language. It’s surprising – but not surprising to us at i-Italy – that many Americans, who do not have a familial relationship with our country, are interested in studying our language. The charm of our culture penetrates America, regardless of the blood ties of its inhabitants.
