Melbourne celebrating Italian Language Week

Categories: Culture and creativity -Language and education
The 22nd edition of the Italian Language Week in the World lands at the Italian Cultural Institute in Melbourne.
Melbourne SLIM 2022

The Settimana della Lingua Italiana nel Mondo (Italian Language Week in the World) returns as it does every year. The presentation ceremony held last 13 October at the Farnesina kicked off the XXII Edition, a great series of events that, from 17 to 23 October 2022, will involve all continents, under the theme L’italiano e i giovani. Excuse me? I don’t follow you.

The Italian Cultural Institute of Melbourne could not fail to make its contribution. The exhibition Utopia: le parole dell’arte, from the Treccani Vocabulary will open on 17 October. Realised in collaboration with Treccani and CO.AS.IT., and curated by Giovanna Fazzuoli, the exhibition relates works by well-known Italian artists with key-words to attempt the utopian feat of creating a vocabulary of images, a collection of artists’ posters celebrating contemporary creativity and the charm of the language we speak and write.

The exhibition will be the setting for a series of conferences on 17 and 18 October, which will feature, among others, Giulia Addazi, author and editor of the podcast Maturadio, who will address in her talk entitled “Inderogabili norme e cautele. The Italian language between radio and podcasts, the topic of the impact of this new media on our language and listening habits.

Finally, on 22 October, the VII National Conference of Italian Teachers will take place, an event that this year has taken up the theme of SLIM, to take stock of the relationship between Italian and the younger generations in Australia.
