On the occasion of the “20th Week of the Italian Language in the World”, the Embassy of Italy is pleased to announce a Contest for students of the Italian language in the United States. 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, under the High Patronage of the President of Republic.  Each year, the Week has a different underlying theme for a vast cultural program to advance the promotion 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, a leading institution in the field of research on the Italian language, which was subsequently joined by the Swiss Confederation where Italian is one of the three official languages. This year, the theme is “L’Italiano tra parola e immagine: graffiti, illustrazioni, fumetti” (“Italian between words and images: graffiti, pictures, comics”).
