This paper explains how the Basque language arrived at Ca’ Foscari and the work that has been carried out since it was introduced into our university’s programme. We will also consider the way Basque literature and culture have entered the curriculum and the strategies undertaken to follow up the students’ work. Finally, it will be explained how important it is to offer the possibility to study and get to know languages and cultures such as Basque, as they are usually considered minor issues due to their light numerical weight.
