Mexico-Italy: 500 years of cultural dialogue

Categories: Culture and creativity
A series of five seminars, two hundred years after Mexican independence.

The Italian Embassy in Mexico, together with the Italian Cultural Institute of Mexico City and in collaboration with the National Institute of Anthropology and History, is promoting a scientific programme, divided into five seminars, dedicated to 500 years of cultural dialogue between Mexico and Italy.

Internationally renowned scholars and academics will be taking part in the seminar, which will form part of the official México 2021 año de la independencia’ programme, which the Federal Government is preparing for the coming months, reflecting on three centenaries:

  • 1821-2021, the Bicentenary of Mexican independence;
  • 1521-2021, the fifth centenary of the fall of México-Tenochtitlan;
  • 1321-2021, the seventh centenary of the foundation of México-Tenochtitlan.

The first of the five seminars (28-30 April 2021) is dedicated to cultural relations between Italy and Mexico over a time span ranging ‘from conquest to the modern day’.

The subsequent meetings will focus on Italian-Mexican studies dedicated to indigenous culture (17-18 May), the work of Italian archaeologists and restorers in Mexico (27-28 May), the pre-Hispanic and colonial world (3-4 September) and the Mexican Treasury (23-24 September).

Participation is free of charge. It will be possible to follow the seminars on the YouTube channels of INAH TV and of the Italian Cultural Institute in Mexico City.

Information about the series of seminars is available on the websites of the Italian Embassy in Mexico and the Italian Cultural Institute in Mexico City.
