Mohey Eddin Sholkamy Abdelgawad    Dipartimento d'Italiano, Facoltà di Lingue    



The present study tackles the initiatives via which Italy is promoting the Italian language and culture abroad. It is aimed at compiling these initiatives in one place; this is profoundly important in the linguistic history of Italian as addressed to people outside Italy and familiarising researchers with these initiatives. This study analyses 9 initiatives that directly contribute to promoting the Italian language and culture outside Italy. The final conclusion of the study is that the Italian government and people are keen on supporting these initiatives and publicising them among non-Italian communities in Italy as well as abroad, which brings about disseminating not only a language or a culture but a whole state system (language, culture, economics, politics, etc.).
