  • Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Paolo Gentiloni, has just appointed the new directors of three major Italian Cultural Institutes: in London, Moscow, and New York. The director’s office at 686 Park Avenue will now be occupied by Giorgio Van Straten, award-winning author and manager of arts associations of the caliber of the Venice Biennale and of Agis (the Italian association for the performing arts), among others.

  • 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.
