The Italian Language

Door To Better Understanding

This year’s edition of the Week of the Italian Language in the World focuses on the theme “Italian language on stage”, with the aim of introducing the Serbian public to language's link with music and theatre

Italian is a language of culture, work and study. Speaking Italian means having access to an extremely valuable artistic and literary heritage that’s essential to the history of Europe and it can turn a visit to Italy into an even greater pleasure. It is the key to developing a better understanding of, and appreciation for, the Italian lifestyle.

Italian is among the main foreign languages studied in Serbia, with more than 35,000 students studying it as a second foreign language in primary and secondary schools, and more than 2,000 young people studying it at the university level.

The Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrade offers Italian language courses and the possibility of acquiring official certificates of linguistic competence that are useful for the continuation of studies in Italy

One of the main objectives of the Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrade is to promote and diffuse the Italian language in Serbia. It is with this in mind that this institute offers Italian language courses and the possibility of acquiring official certificates of linguistic competence that are useful for the continuation of studies in Italy.

Since 2001, the third week of October has been dedicated to the Week of the Italian Language in the World, an event that’s promoted by Italy’s diplomatic network with numerous activities organised worldwide with the aim of promoting the Italian language.

This year’s 19th edition of the Week of the Italian Language in the World focuses on the theme “Italian language on stage”, which will provide the leitmotif of the vast programme intended to be presented to the Serbian public and to highlight the language’s link to music and theatre.
