17th Week of the Italian Language in the World – “Concert in Ramallah”

The 17th Week of the Italian Language in the World opened in Ramallah with a concert entitled ‘The Italian touch’. The concert, which was promoted by the Italian Consulate General in Jerusalem in association with the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music, was a great success and was attended, among others, by representatives of the Palestinian political world, including the Palestinian Ministry of Education, in addition to business people and representatives from the world of culture, including Souad Amiri, a well-known writer among Italian readers.

Drawing upon the theme of the Week, “Italian at the Cinema, Italian in the Cinema”, soprano Dima Bawab and pianist Muraad Layousse performed songs from Italian soundtracks or written by Italian composers.  Within the framework of the ‘Italian Way of Life’ integrated promotion programme launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the MIUR, the MIBACT and the MiSE, the concert also offered the opportunity to highlight Italy’s points of excellence: spanning from the export figures in the manufacturing sector to the figures relative to pharmaceutical research and Italy’s commitment to protect cultural heritage, and the candidacy of Neapolitan pizza – which was greatly appreciated in the tasting event that followed – for inclusion in UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
