Media Accreditation Note 

Final event of the Days of Italian Training in the World

Farnesina, 17 November 2022, 3 PM

Thursday, 17 November 2022, at 3 PM, the final event of the Days of Italian Training in the World will be held at the Farnesina in the International Conference Hall. In the presence of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, and the Minister of Education and Merit, Giuseppe Valditara, the Italian Training System in the World and its relations and collaborations will be presented, with a reflection on the strategic role and the present and future potential of this network of educational institutions.

The event, moderated by the ANSA Deputy Director, Stefano Polli, will be introduced by the Farnesina Director General for Public and Cultural Diplomacy, Pasquale Terracciano, and wrapped up by the Principal Director for the Promotion of the Italian Culture and Language, Alessandro De Pedys.

This will be the first institutional event dedicated to the Italian Training System in the World. It is an opportunity for discussion and dialogue among all players in the network, which includes Italian schools and sections abroad, lectures and courses on the Italian language and culture.

The Italian Training System in the World includes:

–       over 300,000 students;

–   7 Italian state schools abroad – the core of the System – in Addis Ababa, Athens, Barcelona, Istanbul, Madrid, Paris and Zurich;

–  42 Italian private schools abroad – 30 of which in the Northern Hemisphere and 12 in the Southern Hemisphere;

–    92 Italian sections in foreign, bilingual or international schools where the Italian language is taught, as well as subjects taught in Italian. Over half (49) are the result of international agreements;

–     10,979 courses on Italian language and culture abroad, organised by managing bodies and ministerial teaching staff. 65 managing bodies received ministerial grants in 2021, spread across Europe, North America, Latin America, South Africa, Australia and the Middle East;

–   130 Italian language lectures in foreign universities, active in 63 countries;

–       school staff: 674 school managers, teachers and administrative staff, managed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and serving abroad.

With the first edition of the Days of Italian Training in the World, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, together with the ANSA press agency, wants to boost this network of educational institutions, promoting discussion among all players on opportunities, challenges and prospects.

The actors of the Italian Training System in the World liaise with the diplomatic and consular network, with the Cultural Institutes and with the other public and private actors active in the promotion of the Italian language and culture in the world, based on multi-year country plans that take into account the needs of the cultural, social and economic context of the local realities.

Students, experts, teachers and school managers will attend the initiative, which stems from the awareness that Italian education and training are an important instrument of cultural diplomacy and soft power, as part of the promotion of the Italian language and culture in the world.

All updates on the event, which will be held at the Farnesina, will be published at www.esteri.it and www.italiana.esteri.it.
