The new portal for the promotion of Italian language, culture and creativity in the world by Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
italiana is the Farnesina’s response to the demand for Italian culture around the world.
A unique vessel where music and performing arts, literature and publishing, cinema, visual arts, archaeology and cultural heritage, design, food and wine come to the fore.
A project that sees the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation engaged both as a promoter and as a producer of integrated promotional initiatives.
An investment for the development of the Italian cultural and creative sector, which seeks innovation and growth, including at international level.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Ministry has supported the internationalization of artists and cultural and creative industries with additional resources, producing and promoting over 400 original works and content and engaging hundreds of artists and professionals.
This commitment is flanked by the initiatives (face-to-face and virtual) carried out by the 128 Embassies and Permanent Representations, by the 81 Consulates and by the 82 Italian Cultural Institutes – which, together with the Italian schools abroad and the archaeological missions, make up the ‘extended cultural network’ of the Farnesina wordwide.
From today, all this is available online, free of charge and all over the world, through a cultural offering of content and news that will grow day by day.
Welcome to italiana. Italy has never been so close.
