Our language is an extraordinary instrument for the promotion of Italy abroad. We can use the Italian language to disseminate our culture and bring people closer to our country and way of life. Recent statistics show that over 1.7 million people throughout the world study Italian, making our language the fourth most studied in the world, as a foreign language.
