18th edition of 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 programme 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. 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.

The 18th edition of the Week of the Italian Language in the World, scheduled to take place from 15 to 21 October 2018, will be dedicated to “Italian and the web, social networks for the Italian Language”.

This is a highly topical subject, and will delve into the interactions and influences between the Italian language, the Net, new information technologies and social communications, including social platforms.
