A new research project looking at how modern Italian culture has developed around the world, to be led by the University of Bristol, has been awarded £1.8million by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

From the insights it develops into transnational Italian cultures, the project will forge a new framework for the discipline of Modern Languages as a whole, one which puts the interaction of languages and cultures at its core. n the 150 year history of Italy as a nation state, communities identified as Italian have formed in many parts of the world, while in the past 30 years Italy has also become a destination country for migrants from a variety of national, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
