The decision to make 2013 the Year of Italian Culture in the United States has created a golden opportunity to showcase our cultural and scientific legacies and promote the cultural and production (Brand Italia) components of our Country Development Plan.
Research, discovery and innovation
The goal of the Year’s theme is to present Italy as a country that is forward-looking and forward-thinking, whose excellence is deeply rooted in a time-honored past of success in the research, discovery, and innovation that repeats in this year’s theme, with a vision and perspective together with the experience and expertise to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Italian culture and identity will be presented and decoded through the kaleidoscope of geniality that has forged Italian life and lifestyle: art, music, theatre, cinema, literature; architecture and archaeology, science, design, fashion; politics, law and economics; and, of course, cuisine.
Some of the events already on the calendar will be organized in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Washington DC and the Consulates General and Italian Cultural Institutes located across America, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit, Miami.
Those attracted by the values and objectives of the Year of Italian Culture in the United States and interested in linking their brands have a series of options to choose from: membership, partnership, sponsorship and co-production.
Other forms of participation may also be defined on an individual basis by contacting the Ministry, the Embassy of Italy in Washington, and the Consulates General and Italian Cultural Institutes in the United States.
