Integrated Programme “Italy, Cultures, the Mediterranean”

The new year kicked off with the journey across “Italy, Cultures, the Mediterranean”, the cultural programme that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI), will promote over the year through its overseas network in the Countries of the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf region.   

The special plan #Vivereallitaliana, “Italy, Cultures, the Mediterranean” includes an integrated promotion programme that combines tradition, innovation and creativity and identifies exchanges and highlights cultural and social identities as the instruments through which to consolidate and strengthen the dialogue between the Countries bordering on the two shores of the Mediterranean.   

Listening, dialogue, co–creation, positive cross-fertilization: these are the key words that inspired the Programme, promoting a cooperative approach, encouraging the exchange of ideas and dialogue between Italian institutions and local players and between artists, public opinion and scientists.

Art and photography, music, theatre and dance, cultural and creative industries, language, new technological frontiers and science:  these are the sectors around which were developed the more than 300 initiatives programmed and which will be implemented by the network of Embassies and Italian Cultural Institutes in the area.

Artists and cultural and scientific institutions of excellence in both the Italian and international scenario (including Mimmo Jodice, Stefano Bollani, Nicola Piovani, Eugenio Bennato, Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, Piccolo Teatro di Milano, the MAXXI Foundation, the CNR and Science Museums, the Triennale Design Museum and many more) with testify to the essential role played by culture in strengthening dialogue in the Mediterranean.
