On the occasion of the Week of the Italian Language in the World, dedicated this year to the theme “Italian and Youth’, the Italian Cultural Institute of Washington invites on 21 October to a conference held by the Italian sociolinguist Vera Gheno.

Vera Gheno, sociolinguist, collaborated with the Accademia della Crusca for 20 years.
